I did NOT know that the 70mm films are now kaput and probably
crashed into a billion pieces somewhere on the moon....BUT...who's to
say the films (although bulky) weren't put back into the command module
and came back home with the astronauts....for all we know the 70mm films
are somewhere in an underground vault at Wright Patterson AFB where
lots of secret stuff gets stored mostly underground!
I personally don't know one way or another BUT it would be
an interesting intellectual exercise to see if we can find them
IF they exist....!!!
Otherwise we'll have to wait & see regarding the old videotapes
which are to be transferred ***slowly*** --- Hate to say this or
to disparage someone who really IS trying hard to bring our history
to life and to the forefront......BUT....my equipment is much better
than his and I have much more powerful video-centric computing
systems that would be far faster and get us a far higher video
transfer quality than the FR-900 machines that are being used now!
I am open to using my equipment Gratis (i.e. Free!) if he's willing
to ship me some tapes for transfer to uncompressed SDTV/HDTV
resolution in Quicktime or AVI format.
email me at
for any video transfer help needed!
