onebigmonkeyThis is pretty much the same content as the video in the OP, and it makes the same false claim. The audio tapes recorded in the LM are publicly available and I posted a link earlier in this thread to them, along with which file you need to download and where in that file you can hear the relevant content.
You can find the Apollo 10 ones here:
and the relevant one is 10-030702_5-OF-6.wav. Go to 45:40 for the start of the bit they quote first.
How could this happen and then Gordon Cooper and Ed Mitchell were silent about it?
James Lovell replied as follows:
I have to honestly say that during my four flights into space, I have not seen or heard any phenomena that I could not explain.... / don't believe any of us in the space program believe that there are such things as UFOs.... However, most of us believe that there must be a star like our sun that also has a planetary system [which] must support intelligent life as we know it.... I hope this is sufficient information for Tim Good, and I hope he isn't too disappointed in my answer. [Emphasis added.]
But according to the transcript of Lovell's flight on Gemini 7, an anomalous object was encountered:
SPACECRAFT: Bogey at 10 o'clock high.
CAPCOM: This is Houston. Say again 7.
SPACECRAFT: Said we have a bogey at 10 o'clock high.
CAPCOM: Gemini 7, is that the booster or is that an actual sighting?
SPACECRAFT: We have several, looks like debris up here. Actual sighting.
CAPCOM: . . . Estimate distance or size?
SPACECRAFT: We also have the booster in sight . . .

But you are repeating the claim as valid despite being told it wasn't several posts ago.
The tapes are available.
There was no unearthly music.
It was radio static.
Any other explanation is woo.
And are you really saying that NASA released the tapes because LunaCognita made some ludicrous claim about UFOs?
The actual transcript document is dated June 1969.edit on 8-3-2014 by onebigmonkey because: (no reason given)
Researchers can use the mission transcript scans on this CD to search particular words or phrases spoken during a mission, find the GMT or MET when they were said, and use the tape database to then find the actual audio tape.
Ok I can't answer Jim's question because I neither knew either astronaut.

One thing that bothers me about the 'music' heard by Apollo 10, is that sound cannot carry in space.
Not that i doubt something was being heard, but just that i've not read many, if any, theories on how this could be achieved in space.
