“Today, an engineer named Dennis Wingo is working to resurrect that data. He co-leads the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project–which, as the name implies, is working to pry all that old data off of the tapes. So far, he’s been successful, thanks to a combination of skill and pure luck. Wingo’s team located one of the only NASA computer tape drives left in existence, and carefully restored it to its former glory in order to digitize the old tapes onto modern hard drives.”
