Collect Space: Apollo Press Kits website showcases moon landing media guides. ” A new online archive is showcasing the original guides to the historic Apollo 11 moon landing mission: 50-year-old press kits. [The site], curated by David Meerman Scott, offers free access to high-quality scans of more than three dozen company, contractor and government-prepared press kits that documented the diverse aspects of the historic 1969 lunar expedition. “
NASA: NASA, University of Texas at Dallas Reveal Apollo 11 Behind-the-Scenes Audio. “NASA’s Johnson Space Center has the only functional remaining tape recorder capable of playing those approximately 170 remaining tapes. But the time and effort of converting them to current digital formats was daunting, and required the tape deck to be modified from being able to handle two-channels at a time to handle the 30 channels on the historic tapes. But through a collaborative effort with The University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas), the conversion finally has been completed, and the unique perspective of those at the core of supporting humankind’s ‘giant leap’ is available to download and listen to all 19,000 hours of audio recordings.” This is an incredible achievement. I posted in December about what it took behind the scenes to get this digitizing done.
