    It’s nice that NASA still has the Lunar Orbiter tapes. Unfortunately they, uh, “misplaced” the similar tapes to the historic first moon landing.

    On the //sideline: I was impressed how NASA lost original tapes from Apollo 11 mission, too! Read the full story (spans 3 pages), this sounds un-believable! :-(
