Wow. This wasn’t expected. On the anniversary of the moon landing in 1969, NASA officials stated that they “couldn’t find” the original footage of the lunar walk because it was likely taped over for another mission. They just released new restored footage of the moon walk based on the original broadcast. No explanation as to why no one recognized the first walk on the moon as something that should be saved! To cut costs, the Apollo 11 landing was taped over, but is now costing NASA over $200,000 to restore the broadcast footage.
Sometimes cutting corners isn’t always the best plan. What a huge oversight!
