NASA Restores Moon-Landing Footage

This should be something for conspiracy theorists to run with: NASA has released newly refurbished video of the July 20, 1969 moon landing, which it scrubbed with the help of the same company that restored Casablanca. According to the Associated Press, “The $230,000 refurbishing effort is only three weeks into a months-long project, and only 40 percent of the work has been done. But it does show improvements in four snippets: Armstrong walking down the ladder, which includes the face visor image; Buzz Aldrin walking down the ladder; the two astronauts reading a plaque they left on the moon; the planting of the flag on the moon.”
