The fact that these tapes went missing for 40 years is HIGHLY suspicious.

The people put in charge of televising the Moon landing were engineers. These engineers were given a task as follows:
"provide live TV coverage of the Moon landing for the world to see"
They provided this live coverage, and the tapes were only there as a back-up in case the "live" part didn't get broadcast, (then they could show it later on delay). However, since the live broadcast worked perfectly, they had no need for the back-up tapes.
Yes -- it was certainly not "forward-thinking" of these engineers not to save the back-up tapes. However, the real fault here is not putting a historian on the broadcast team, but instead having only engineers on that team.
Engineers do not think like Historians.

I also noticed that light when I was watching the "enhanced" for the first time last night. I have no idea what it is? One thing that did strike me as weird is that I heard them say that they "Accidently" erased the original footage of the moon landing!!!!!!!! What are you kidding me???? They must really think we are all idiots. I wonder if the original was really original in the true form of the word?!?!?

How can you compare the tragic death of three astronauts in an accident to a "public" organization deliberately erasing the most important video footage in the history of mankind???

Yeah. I kind of see what you are trying to get at but I'm not buying it. You are trying to say that not ONE individual there would think that supposedly the MOST important event in human history being filmed on tape would not be something to keep? I just don't buy it. Not even if they are limited in their forward thinking.

Maybe those shuttles were distroyed on purpose so they could send some of their brightest service members to extraplanetary bases without anyone raising an eyebrow. Its a possiblity.
Do you "Really" know they got on the shuttle...
and if they did are you "sure" they werent beamed up before the explosion by the asgard.
