There's a good overview of the background of this interesting archive recovery project at CollectSPACE.

As a historian, I appreciate the comment, "LOIRP's restoration of the Lunar Orbiter images to high resolution will provide the scientific community with a baseline to measure and understand changes that have occurred on the moon since the 1960s."

It turns out that there are two separate ways to get at the archival Lunar Orbiter data. Since around 2000 the USGS has been developing procedures to digitize the data from high resolution scans of the original archival film strips derived from the magnetic tapes. They have added a careful image matching procedure to register overlapping parts of adjacent film strips and have also corrected some of the cosmetic defects found in the originally released images. For a discussion and refs to a series of papers at the LPSI conferences from 2001 to 2007 see this overview from the USGS.

Isn't archival redundancy wonderful. (or is it that NASA doesn't know what the USGS is doing) rolleyes.gif

Yup, but wasn't the rest of that image also processed?

That's a great Earthrise shot and very nicely restored!

Just for fun, here's a quickish colorization : http://www.fileden.com/files/2007/9/14/143...r_Earthrise.jpg

I was sure that Lunar Orbiter's original tapes missing forever. What a wonderful view, the several palettes filled by tapes.

A bit more background story on the saga of the Lunar Orbiter data tapes.
Here is a recent article from the Post-Standard, the newspaper in Syracuse, NY, relating the involvement of a member of UMSF (yours truly). I am honored to have been a part of the multi-year effort to save the Lunar Orbiter data tapes.
The image in the background is a colorized version of the Lunar Orbiter Earth-Set image, of August 23, 1966. This colorized version was created by Gordan Ukargovic (ugordan) of UMSF.

Some interesting handmade image mosaics from Surveyor 7 that I think haven't seen before.
