This is pretty much totally rad.

Old broken tape drives and old crusty flaky reels of tape were all that was left of a good deal of NASA's archives of the 60s space program. A team of dedicated archivists and restorers gathered up what was left, blew off the dust, and took over an abandoned McDonalds to get to work.

The
end result is stunning. I'd never seen the original earthrise image in such high resolution. Really, this is amazing stuff.

Great job, folks!
