First of all..why would you put such important data in an abandoned MCdonalds of all places? There are surely hundreds of other more well defended and secured locations than some old MCDonalds...and I agree with an earlier statement thatthis particular MCdonalds seems to have very modern looking equipment, I mean it looks like theres even still power to the building perhaps, while this is a wonderfull idea, the given facts of the story just dont seem to add up to a legitimate discovery.

This is not a true story.
Is there a way ATS can filter out all of these baloney stories? It's getting ridiculous now.
We are all "denying ignorance", denying the fact that we are ignorant, and very gullible.

Anyone denying that this story, is pretty retarded. The High resolution photos, could be taken back then, Just look at some of the photos of nasa astronaughts, back in the early days. They look exactly like a HD Photo from today.
And they did have HD tv's back in the fifties, I think it was Japan that started it, for military communications. For some reason, it was never used in the consumer market.
Also , you cannot just fake thousands of Brand new images of the moon.

While the advice of extending the shelf life of batteries through refrigeration may be a little dubious, the storage of film stock is a different story. Most film does have an expiration date stamped on the protective casing, which generally means the film manufacturer guarantees the quality of their product until that date. Expired film can still provide decent photographs for the average amateur photographer, but increased graininess does become a factor. Extending the life of most film stock through refrigeration is actually a common practice among many professional photographers and is supported by the film manufacturers' own literature.
