This should get the conspiracy nuts worked up into a frenzy. Those “Loose Change” guys will have to work this into the script. According to this story in the Washington Times:
The original film footage of astronaut Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon, one of the most important artifacts of the 20th century, has been lost.
The television broadcast seen by about 600 million people in July 1969 is preserved for posterity, but the original tapes from which the footage was taken have been mislaid, most likely in NASA’s vast archives at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.
Even if they find it the “chain of custody” will forever be suspect in the eys of the conspiracy theorists.
Hey, I just had a thought…Maybe THEY took it.
