There was an exhibition in Sydney a decade or so ago where they got rare access to the original negatives & transparencies from the Apollo era. The quality of prints on display were just incredible. Anything on the internet or printed that I have seen since has never come close. I hope these image rather than copies of copies will be available to us all again.

I'm lucky enough to have actually been there. It's even more amazing up close!

Richard Branson is already working on making the Earth into a Virgin mega experience with fly-buys and little grey corporate men all over the world, even in Tajikistan.

One day Earth will be just a tourist destination, a National Park in an otherwise sh*tty and uninhabitable solar system.

Great, let F this place and move on with the myth of progress even though Gypsies aren't tolerated anywhere around Earth.

Yes and when you hear these subversive anthropogenic global warming skeptics bang-on about how they might or might not accept Apollo 11 as real , you can count them amongst the same as the Holocaust deniers for the same reason.
