leetrout writes "I attended a media briefing held by NASA at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. this morning where they released restored video of the Apollo 11 mission. The clips released are about 40% of the total footage to be restored by September by Lowry Digital in Burbank, CA. Wired has all the clips A couple remarkable comments made during the briefing included the opinion from the original footage search committee that the original slow scan footage (stored as a single track on telemtry tapes) has been lost forever as the tapes were likely recycled by the mid '80s (apparently common NASA practice). Also, that some one from the applied physics laboratory was in Australia converting the slow scan directly to video. This differs from NASA's goal of merely broadcasting the event, which it was successful at. Unfortunately, no one knows where those tapes of approximately 2 hours of footage are located."
