Today, all photos are digitally 'cleansed' of any and all offending material by super sophisticated computer programs which automatically eliminate offending objects and artifacts and replace them with more suitable and approved images.

It's hard to believe that the Navy spent all that money to take digital photos resulting in less quality than off-the-shelf digital imaging chips readily available in the 90's...

If the argument that the old photos are the good ones because NASA started to airbrush their photos after their first missions is true then we can stop looking, right? What is the use of looking at "airbrushed" photos?

It's the tape used to hold together the hundreds of smaller photos that make up the whole panorama. On occasion we catch a glimpse of scotch tape peeking out.
