I've been doing some research on the famous "Earthrise" photo by Apollo 8. I've found some anomalies as reported by John Lear, and I also found a
couple others. So anyway, yesterday I posted my article on my website. Today I find out that image ISD_highres_AS11_AS11-44-6552.TIF had been deleted
from the Johnson Space Center Image Archive. On top of that the AS11 series images associated with it were also modified today and yesterday. So I
emailed two curators on the website concerning the deletion. I received no response, but shortly after sending the emails, the image reappeared on the
JCS archive. Only it shows as being modified today. I took screen shots of all this strange behavior. Something VERY odd is going on that
This scan of AS11-44-6552 was modified on 15 July 2009: www.lpi.usra.edu...
There's nothing odd with new scans or edits being made. Our technology is improving all the time, so occasionally there's an opportunity to re-scan
and improve the old photos.
