NASA held a briefing Thursday, July 16, at the Newseum in Washington where NASA released greatly improved video imagery from the July 1969 live broadcast of the Apollo 11 moonwalk.

The release featured 15 key moments from Neil Armstrong’s and Buzz Aldrin’s historic moonwalk using what is believed to be the best available broadcast-format copies of the lunar excursion, some of which had been locked away for nearly 40 years. The initial video released Thursday is part of a comprehensive Apollo 11 moonwalk restoration project expected to be completed by the fall of 2009.
