Moon Landing
London, Oct 7: The remastered footage of the Apollo 11 moon landing was, for the first time, screened at an Australian Geographic magazine awards ceremony on Wednesday, Oct 6.

The video shown in presence of Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin, who was the guest of honour at the ceremony, showed the first few minutes of Neil Armstrong's historic mission.

According to The Telegraph, the restored video's quality is far better than the footage that the world saw on TV at the time of the moon-landing.

The search and digital restoration process of the two-and-a-half hour-long tape from Apollo 11 took six years.

NASA had in 2009 released extracts of the work to mark the 40th anniversary of the landing.
