Now we know the real reason why NASA is going to return humans to the moon again. They lost (not lost, misplaced) the original video footage of the first landing on the moon.
NASA aknowledged this week that they can not find 13,000 (!!) original tapes of the historic Apollo moon missions. The space agency thinks that they are somewhere at the Goddard Space Flight Center.
The resolution of the original video transmission is supposed to be much better than the footage we all have seen on TV.
NASA is now conducting an official search for the tapes over the next 6 month. Of course the missing tapes are feeding the sticky conspiracy theory that NASA never landed on the moon and just staged the whole thing during the Cold War.
The next generation manned space vehicles for moon and mars missions are called Ares. The crew launch vehicle will be called Ares I, and the cargo launch vehicle will be known as Ares V. More details on the NASA site.
