Original moon landing tapes fetch $1.82 million at New York auction

Original moon landing tapes fetch $  1.82 million at New York auctionOriginal videotapes of the Apollo 11 moon landing which a NASA intern bought for $ 217.77 (£174.14) were sold for $ 1.82 million at a Sotheby's auction in New York on Saturday. They were bought by Gary George at a government surplus auction in 1976.

Placed in a shock-proof insulated mount, the camera captured Armstrong's descent onto the lunar surface, before being placed on a tripod. Mr George was an engineering student at Lamar University in Texas as well as an intern at the NASA Johnson Space Centre in Houston. He bought around 1,500 reels of magnetic tape and gave most away, apart from three which his father noticed were labelled "APOLLO 11 EVA | July 20, 1969 REEL 1. Mr George gave the reels little attention until 2008 when he heard that NASA was trying to locate the original tapes. The purchaser of the tapes was not disclosed by Sotheby's.
