Armstrong's famous Moonwalk, which was seen by millions of television viewers July 20, 1969, is one of several recording tapes that NASA has lost, reports CNN.

- We have not seen them for a while. We have been looking for over a year and not found them, said Greg Hautaloma, spokesman at Nasa.

The tapes also contained data on astronauts' health and condition of the spacecraft. In total there are 700 boxes of original recordings from Apollo Mission missing.

Hehe.

NASA has retained copies of the TV broadcasts and offers several clips on its Web site. But those images are of lower quality than the originals stored on the missing magnetic tapes.

Because NASA's equipment was not compatible with the TV technology of the day, the original transmissions had to be displayed on a monitor and reshot by a TV camera for broadcast.

Hautaloma said it is possible the tapes will be unplayable if they are found because they have degraded significantly over the years -- a problem common to magnetic tape and other recordable media.

It doesn't matter what NASA says or does the conspiracy theorists will have a counter move claiming to disprove the facts. That is all but one. They have never produced a reputable witness to what would have to been a massive movie production.

My motto: Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow as it may not be required. This no longer applies in light of current events.

Look at it this way - at least they're using their imaginations and being creative instead of just sitting and stuffing their faces watching tv.
