A more relevant DP take on the Apollo tapes: The power of individuals vs. bureacracySubmitted by LexingtonGreen on Wed, 07/15/2009 - 11:39
I know the Apollo 11 tapes thread was locked. I offer two articles that are related to this issue but are more relevant to this forum. They describe the determination of individuals and their efforts to recover these tapes from unwieldy and unresponsive government bureaucracies. Ultimately, they were found in Australia
I hope this one doesn't get locked because it's not about the conspiracies. Rather it's an encouraging story of what individuals can do when they set their minds to accomplish something.
This is posted in Current Events because NASA is holding a press conference tomorrow to reveal the footage.
A Wired magazine article from 2007:
"One Giant Screwup for Mankind
NASA put a man on the moon - then lost the videotape. A grizzled crew of ex-rocket jockeys are on a star-crossed mission to find it."
And the follow up story from the Daily Express newspaper:
"WORLD EXCLUSIVE: NASA FINDS MISSING MOON LANDING TAPES"
