    Armstrong is such the pilot's pilot and engineer's engineer, I bet he little tolerance for such highjinx on his missions.
    Astronauts had a quota of weight for personal items. There is a story about how the crew of the lunar lander hid photos of their families on the base.

    I always wondered about the Gamma radiation fogging the film... was there lead linings on the Blads?

    I talked with David Wolf (shuttle man), he spoke about how much radiation he received daily on the space station.
    Wolf said that in the Russian part of the station some of the windows are not lead glass and your hair will burn right off your arm when the sun shines directly through.
    I've heard pinky Nelson talk about the radiation in space. He says when you close your eyes to sleep you occasionally see flashes as radiation interacts with your eye akin to a cloud chamber

    I just noticed in Michael's here in Melbourne, they have a Hasselblad Space Camera in a glass case.

    Cameras were not the only thing dumped before return. They would get back in the LM, hook up to LM life support, then dump their PLSS back packs. Close the hatch and repressurize the compartment. I would think that by now the cameras would have picked up a static charge and been covered with dust.

    THis is as bad as a moon landing denyer. THERE IS NO wind to move dust... the meteror crators and all are Billions of years old and intact because things only move on the moon when something crashes into it. Sure a little dust will eventually settle on things... but why post crazy stuff.

    I quit this one-upmanship game.... I don't see any women one-uping other folks reasonable comments.

    Selling them on eBay would be a deal. Some flipper will flood the market by offering all of them at one time and the value will drop like a rock. Postage will not be an isue as the seller will only offer pickup is the responsibility of the buyer. He may offer a deal through Mr. Richard Branson to get a ride to pickup.

    The astronauts had enough to worry about rather than fogging the most important films in the history of the world to that date... oh... so there would be a "complete" camera on the moon... ahhhhhhhh nuts.

    So folks here at APUG are better engineers typing at home than the single greatest TEAM of engineers and technicians assembled to this day?!?! The "pilots" had sooooo many things to do to land and return from the moon, the checklists were a mile long... and those backs were loaded in a clean room with ultra thin base film.

    The lunar module was full of dust after re-pressurazation one of the men said it smelled like charcole dust.

    What about space dust?
