Very cool. The only thing not cool is that thought of unsureness if real or not. However, if we really did go to the moon, and hopefully we did, I think it's a great achievement.

So was the rover attached to the lander, or was it sort of flat packed?

That is awesome footage.
I especially liked the triangle ufo at 12:03!


Considering that the LEM had just detached from the CM, I think that could be some kind of debris associated with the undocking procedure.

Both!


The base of the LM had little pie-shaped areas in which equipment could be stowed (such as "quadrant one" in the image below:


That piece of pie was about 5 feet x 5 feet x 5 feet. The Lunar Rover would need to fit in this tiny space, so it was made so it could be folded up for travel to the Moon, then unfolded (relatively easily) by the astronauts once they got there.






more information and image source:
"How did they Pack the Apollo Lunar Rover?"


Here is a link to section 2 of the Lunar Rover operating manual, which includes the deployment procedure that the astronauts needed to follow to get the LEM unstowed and operational:

Oh I'm sure it was, but I thought I would stir up the 'you know who's'

SEE what happens when you joke about something it comes back and bites you in the A55.

I figured as much, hence the addition of the friendly smiley to my post

I love the cartoon astronaut graphics.
The early 1970s were in some ways such a simpler time.

I'm not sure if this footage was stabilized with modern software or if it was done closer to the time of filming. Either way it shows that we have/had the capability of producing high quality footage and images. There is no excuse for the stuff we get from Mars or even the other moon footage.

If you read the video description it would have told you how it was stabilized. It was stabilized using the open source editing software virtualdub and a filter called deshaker.

Wow I never even knew footage like that even existed, never seen it before the stable footage helps a lot with seeing it clearly, very cool!

Well, I'll be dashed. It DOES leave tracks.

So interestingly I thought I'd try and find where these new scans are from. Turns out NASA rescanned most of the films in some time ago, but the only place that seems to have access to them is here:

www.footagevault.com...

Surely Americans must be able to get access to these files without paying the rather ridiculous prices listed here. I don't quite understand why this is the only source available. Still, you can view high quality (but low resolution) versions of a lot of apollo footage here.

You'd think something as treasured and "legendary" as our moon landings would have films being sold by more than a place known as Footage Vault on the internet. Perhaps even footage would be available on the NASA or government websites as a way to garner support and money for future missions. I was rather surprised with how clear the footage is and I hope more people can get a hold of older footage shot this way that we can then destabilize it.

It is pretty incredible stuff. I recently found this website that has an interactive launch of the original Apollo mission. It has all sorts of data and info points and you can take the rocket from launch and all of the stages until landing. It is a pretty cool website that everyone should check out if they're interested in the moon or space exploration at all.. I have no affiliation with the website, just found it very cool and informational and I think you'd all enjoy it.

Having grown up near 'The Cape' and watched the evolution of it as family, then later myself, working there was somewhat of a family tradition...we have no doubt what happened.

Having been so personally involved we are very proud of the achievements, so seeing this video takes me back home again.


Fake moon footage filmed in a highly funded studio, takes you back home eh?

DVDs of excellent quality and comprehensive video & film content are available from Spacecraft Films. Superb documentation can be found at the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal (though the video quality is not great) and Landing Apollo. High quality photo scans are at both sites, and also The Project Apollo Archive.

It's defiantly fake. I can see it without any trouble. Americans always fake things. I would only trust scandinavian countries if they said they went to the moon.

What is it that you can see, that seems fake to you?

Pretty pricey: www.spacecraftfilms.com...
But there's some free HD footage on Youtube: viewfromabove.co.uk...
