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.
