Lost History Update

Houston, our tapes have gone missing, The Independent

"Until now, they have kept the story out of the press because, they say, they do not want to embarrass NASA. They insist it is wrong to characterise the tapes as "missing". "They're not missing," Mr Lebar said, "we just haven't found them."

NASA can't find original tape of moon landing, Reuters

"I wouldn't say we're worried -- we've got all the data. Everything on the tapes we have in one form or another," [NASA spokesman Grey] Hautaloma said."

Editor's note: Not true Grey. NASA has low resolution copies of higher resolution television imagery. You know - kind of like having blurry, faded photocopies of Columbus' original log books and maps. I would be willing to bet that the search for these historic tapes was a low priority matter at NASA until the media picked up on the story.
