NASA remembered video of moon landing released

NASA has released digitally remastered video of the historic 1969 moonwalk.

The pictures themselves are not new. But some details are.

Originally, U.S. astronaut Neil Armstrong's face visor was too fuzzy to be seen. The refurbished video shows his visor and his reflection in it.

The pictures also show Buzz Aldrin, another U.S. astronaut on the mission, bouncing on the moon. Armstrong and Aldrin are seen unveiling a plaque to commemorate their voyage and there are images of the two planting the American flag.

According to NASA, the four digital sequences are believed to be the best available broadcast-format copies of the lunar excursion.

The space agency admitted in 2006 that no one could find the original video recordings of the lunar landing.
