I still don't get it I guess. Call me dense beyond belief. Read the link that Phage posted. It's a story from 2009 and yet the copyright info
says 2010 and yet it's under the heading of news and yet and yet the ads are 2010. Why would it be reprinted as news today?
Also am still wondering where the stuff went from the other links - the actual government sites. And why the NASA poster inviting me to call in and
report crimes is unavailable. And why the customs declaration is unavailable on the government site.
NASA Office Inspector General Hotline is still on.
NASA OIG is the department of NASA that are responsible (among other things)
for overseeing public interests according NASA charter.
They investigate fraud and negligence of NASA officials or NASA contractors, and publish regular reports on such cases;
do they report directly to the Congress or NASA Admin - not sure, but
I have read their reports on lost 'apollo tapes', cases of private sales of Space artifacts (considered as US public treasures) incl. Apollo program
moon rocks(remember famous Honduras moon rock - case United States vs Moon Plaque), etc.
and the scan of Apollo 11 custom declaration is still on CBP site, as pointed by Phage, though the link URL address has changed since my OP last
Some (phage?) suggested a kind of 'mischief' behavior either from space.com senior editor, US Custom Border Patrol, or NASA History Office.
Maybe.. but why did not indicate this as 1st April joke, and publish around Apollo moon landings celebrations dates.
Should gov officials be allowed mock the Apollo historical events? Ask Buzz Aldrin...
Alternatively who was posing as Apollo crew on 24 July, 1969 at Honolulu airport? Any suggestions?
