Lost soundtrack for Apollo 16 Lunar Buggy discovered

Click the link to this MP3 file in a new tab and then start the video as soon as it starts playing.


  1. This used to be the kind of thing everyone in the world watched at the same time. Now it’s just the latest tragedy that draws us all to the tube. We don’t strive as a nation anymore.

    Don’t know how I got this bummer feeling watching this cool video. Sorry, I’ll take a chill pill.

  2. I can’t access the mp3 link here at work (Jack Warner must find that domain naughty for some reason), but I figure it must sound exactly like this.

  3. Noone’s joined the audio and video together and reuploaded the video (with links to both sources), or is there a reason this hasn’t happened?

  4. NO! just NO!!! Don’t believe it people. A bit funny perhaps, but not even REMOTELY true.
    A) there’s not enough atmosphere on the moon for such sounds to be transmitted.
    B) the lunar rovers were battery powered, so there would be NO engine sounds
    C) the regolith on the moon is fine dust. the audio file is clearly gravel and/or dirt

  5. It’s ensaddening to see all the “moon hoax” videos (with massive pageviews), when you click on the actual moon videos.

  6. That was pretty good.  A little foley like that would have helped the live coverage.  I watched those as a child and watching guys poke at gray rocks for three days with nothing but ”  Houston… 5 to LDKS,  Now deploying FLANCOM…. ” as the audio required great devotion.

    that long shot of the camera on the moving rover was something you never saw live.  The camera required a staionary antenna to connect to earth.

    1.  It’s an option when you upload to YouTube. (Under “Enhancements”.)  It’s also an add-on filter in VirtualDub, and, I’m sure, in many other video editors. IIR the edges can be optionally trimmed, at least in VirtualDub.
