Moonwalk Makeover by NASA

The Apollo 11 mission was the first manned mission to land on the Moon. It was the fifth human spaceflight of Project Apollo and the third human voyage to the Moon. Launched on July 16, 1969, it carried Mission Commander Neil Alden Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin Eugene ‘Buzz’ Aldrin, Jr. On July 20, Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon, while Collins orbited above.

On the 40th anniversary of moon landing NASA has unveiled restored video footage of man’s first steps on the moon. The first installment of a more extensive project, the video includes 15 restored key moments from the mission led by astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. The video was only brought back to life after it was rediscovered following an extensive three-year search through some 45,000 video cassettes in NASA’s analog archives.

It has truly been historic when Armstrong made him unforgettable by quoting “One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”.

  1. When Neil Armstrong landed on the moon, most Pakistanis said it wasn’t possible. Some said that he had landed in a deserted area outside Malir (Karachi), while others said it was a hoax. Later, they accepted that man had landed on the moon (mainly because the Russians also accepted it). But they added a new twist: Armstrong became a Muslim after hearing the “azaan” in a Cairo mosque, since he was supposed to have heard it on the moon also. A woman preacher said during a “dars” (which my wife attended) that Armstrong had heard Surah-e Rahman on the moon! No wonder that a large number of Pakistani Muslims still think that Neil Armstrong is a Muslim, which is not true.

    I had an argument last night about this with my husband. He was insisting what u are pointing out. I have not been through something like this but it could be possible if we consider NASA’s confession that the original Moon walk tapes had been erased and re used. how come such an important mission’s tapes got erased? NASA is as poor to re use tapes?
    Do share the article.
    thanks

  3. I have read an article somewhere that first walk on the moon was all fake. Article more stated that it was filmed on earth with artifical background and so on. Also, it was stated that the film was made to show that USA is far better than USSR in space technology at that time…

    I will come back with that artcile if i find it again….
