Can someone point out a satelite that can carry 48,000 lbs of 70mm tape for me?

Here's to much success to you and your colleagues in your efforts! Hope we can see them soon, unless NASA can cook up a reason not to share *sigh*.

Thanks for the good wishes MM. It will be some time though. The reason is that the tape run time is about 50 minutes per tape and with handling, figure one hour. There are about 2,000 tapes so that is a "man year" of work. This is because only one drive is operational at the moment. There is a possibility that another one will be brought up in the near future if funding can be acquired, in which case the time could be compressed to about 6 months. In any case the data will be made public I am sure. This is because NASA's policy is that the raw data is public, but any value added can be charged for. So, presumably, one will be able to download the reconstructed images for free (if you have the bandwidth), but the LORP could sell the raw data on some media as digitization and media is value added.

The tapes are data that was transmitted from the Lunar Orbiters.

This is a completely pointless effort because as already indicated the data on the tape isn't any better than anything we have now. Even Kaguya blows away what is on those data tapes (or rather what ISN'T on those tapes.)

So far the release of images from Kaguya has been very limited. It remains to be seen what will be made public from Chandayran.

3 or 4 days ago I saw a new news story about this restoration project that talks about it a little more. I originally saw it on either CNN or FOX (can't remember which) under the science/space section.. I found the story on another couple sites. All of them are either dated 13 or 14 November 2008.

Ummm why? Are you saying the tapes were put into orbit?

How silly

Oh wait... your responding to page one... you didn't actually read any of the thread... gotcha

Nope! There were 48,000 lbs of Mac's chicken burgers! See the connection now? The consignment was sent back by them ETs due to lack of cheese toppings, in those 70mm tape containers which were found abandoned at Mac's.


Case closed!


OK, seriously, where have we reached? I mean what the dickens is going on? Have those guys made any headway?

Bottom line: When do we get to see those images?

Cheers!

I'm becoming a little angry about that LOIRP:

They're doing a great job! Thank you!

BUT

Until now they posted only a little little box, at 100% resolution, on their site, inside this image only:

images.spaceref.com...

And the datail level it's amazing, as you can see.
At that resolution, artifacts (human or not) will be clearly visible, exactly what we dreamd of for a very long time.....

BUT

"LOIRP Note: We will be putting the full resolution version of this image on the NASA Lunar Science Institute website with the layers preserved for Photoshop for all you folks to have fun with! We only ask that you send us copies of what you do and credit us if you publish it anywhere."

NASA?

The airbrushing specialists?

Not to an idependent entity (too)?

Wow! what a goal!

All this work done, restoring what probably is *the only untouched source material from the moon* (due to the exotic type of analog recording used)....

....And then you send all to.......NOTHING ?

Not need to say that until now NOTHING is present on that obscure nasa site they mentioned.....

lunarscience.arc.nasa.gov...

And, even if someday some scarce information will surface on that corporation's site, surely it will be not much more affordable than all the past nasa lunar production.

I think this also raises some questions about the technology they have today. If they had such high resolution photography 40 years ago in an analog format while we thought the available footage was crappy, noisy pictures...

It reminds me JL saying in his interview "and people believe the space shuttles are all we have".

i read through the first three pages of thi story, and it seems many o you don't believe this story. It is true, from what I saw on discovery channel about this nearly 6 months ago, nasa was clearing an old warehouse, found all thisstuff, an didn't have the budget to hire the manpower to go through it all so they were going to destroy it. The guy whois pouring through it in the old mc'd's was there and offered to take it, analyze it, and report back to nasa if he found anything interesting. sounds weird but it is very true.

I have a hard time believing a McDonald's would close down. And it doesn't seem very covert to pick a building with all these windows which can easily be seen by anyone passing by. Any official statements from McDonald's? Did anyone claim the tapes or did this group 'steal 'them?

Not so sure about this.

I don't understand. I saw on the news how the video was transmitted in super high quality to Australia, then to California, then to Houston. They also claim the tapes are lost forever.

Doesn't this thread prove that the original moon landing tapes exist? Or are these other tapes and not of the original moon landing?

Would love an update on what is going on with this and why hasn't it been mentioned on the news?

See link below, check out last page. The Original signals of the first Moon Landing were sent back to Earth via SSB. They were Slo-Scan. They were NOT super high quality, nor full frame. Those signals were converted (transcoded) to American standard 525 NTSC.

THIS thread deals with "Lunar Orbiter" tapes. They were unmanned and sent to map out potential landing sites PRIOR to Apollo.

Good info here: www.abovetopsecret.com...

It is being mentioned. MSNBC and Yahoo to name just two. Hope that helps.

Tons of info here: www.honeysucklecreek.net...

You are most certainly welcome. Many of us are addicted to this stuff.
