Hi List,

I found this here:



New Australian footage of Neil Armstrong's moon walk

(AFP) -- 3 days ago

SYDNEY =97 Long-lost footage of Neil Armstrong descending the
ladder of the Apollo 11 lunar module will be screened in public
for the first time in Sydney next week, a prominent astronomer
told AFP.

The footage runs for a few minutes and is considered to be some
of the best footage of the historic 1969 moonwalk, but the film
was lost in archives for many years and was badly damaged when
found, said John Sarkissian.

It depicts the first few minutes of Armstrong's descent which
was recorded in Australia as NASA was still scrambling for a
signal, showing a far clearer image than was initially screened

Telescopes in remote Australia played a key role in the Apollo
11 mission, including provision of the television signal, after
Armstrong decided to attempt the moonwalk early, putting the
United States just beyond the horizon.
