SYDNEY (AFP) Long-lost footage of Neil Armstrong descending the ladder of the Apollo 11 lunar module will be screened in public for the first time in Sydney next week, a prominent astronomer told AFP.
The footage runs for a few minutes and is considered to be some of the best footage of the historic 1969 moonwalk, but the film was lost in archives for many years and was badly damaged when found, said John Sarkissian.
It depicts the first few minutes of Armstrong's descent which was recorded in Australia as NASA was still scrambling for a signal, showing a far clearer image than was initially screened worldwide.

It sounds like Russell Kirk, since he’s my source.
But it’s interesting that you should try to intimate it is from the Protocols. That sort of character assassination is typical of leftists, who have a long history of calling conservatives nazis.
I have the two volume set. Go patronize someone else, junior. If you know his work well enough to make your case then give it a try. Otherwise go read your star wars comics.
I have, not sure what else I can say. We both have the same passage in front of us, and you seem to think that it’s derogatory, and I think it’s just the opposite.
I fear we are at an impasse, force or not. ;)
Only if we plan to stay.
“I intimated nothing. “
I see, yoda. So that was more a pure smear rather than an intimated smear. Glad you clarified it. The rest of your post was interesting as an example of a paranoid rant, but if that’s how you really think you might want to seek medical help.
I don’t think the passage is derogatory, it just doesn’t say what the Wikipedia poster argues that it does. If you look at the section of Democracy in America that it comes from you can see that De Tocqueville was defending Americans against the European perception that they were all a bunch of uncultured rubes.
De Tocqueville wrote that the position of Americans was exceptional in the sense that they were living in a vast undeveloped land, something no other democracy had ever experienced and something that was unlikely to happen in the future.
Anyway my point still is that ‘American Exceptionalism’ appears to be a neologism of recent vintage. I’ve read a lot of political science and history over the last three plus decades and I’ve only seen the phrase pop up recently.
I think it’s more along the lines of “my sometimes drunken mother is always sober and the model of perfection for all you louts”.
I was just wondering where you’d been. Must have been a premonition.
