Who you gonna believe, me or them?
Although I can understand what they’re getting at. During the lunar missions, all the news coverage used the video transmissions. The astronauts had better cameras with them, but by the time they returned and the film was developed, the news cycle had moved on to other things. Al Reinert made For All Mankind when he found out how much high-quality footage NASA had that had never been seen by the public.
If you’re looking for facts about the Apollo missions, you probably won’t find any new ones here. But if you ever have a chance to see this, especially on a big screen, it’s stunning.
In one of our the-landings-were-faked threads, some nutjob said it was suspicious that all the footage we had from the moon was of such low quality. Surely if NASA had really gone to the moon, they’d have taken some good cameras to document it. I told him they did, and someone made a movie out of it, and suddenly that was suspicious, too.
