Taking nothing away from Seinfeld, nor the excellent NY humor,  I  
think if you talk to some engineers of the enlightened variety, they  
might tell you that the theoretical science to land a man on the moon  
was done in the early 1700s.

How do those restored videos of moonwalking look?  (I'm having trouble  
streaming them due to 2 teenagers at home and a slow connection.)   I  
saw a few seconds of Armstrong descending the ladder, and there were  
disturbing artifacts that looked like someone overdid the digital  
equivalent of clamping, but don't know if I was getting the signal, so  
to speak.
