    How many Hasselblad's are on the Moon ? Try Ask.com

    According to www.Ask.com
    http://www.ask.com/web?q=How+many+Ha...rc=0&o=0&l=dir

    Then there's this;
    There are 12 Hasselblad Cameras on the Surface
    of the Moon.

    http://www.petapixel.com/2011/06/15/...e-of-the-moon/

    Did you know that there are 12 Hasselblad
    cameras currently sitting on the surface of the
    moon ? The cameras that shot those iconic images
    of the moon’s surface between 1969 and 1972 were
    left there to allow for the 25kg of lunar rock samples
    that were brought back instead.

    Only the film magazines were brought back.

    I wonder why ? Surely they could have been
    unloaded in the Lunar Module, so the cameras
    could have been left on the moon complete,
    hopefully for some future collector to find.

    The dark side of the moon us dark, it just isnt the same side of the moon all the time. It also varies in level of darkness from starshine to earthshine.

    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 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.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    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.
