The topic of today's video was briefly discussed in an earlier video. But I found this information so important that I feel it deserved its own episode. Long story short: NASA claims that the Apollo 11 moonwalk video was recorded by a TV camera running at 10 frames per second; and to convert it to NTSC (30 frames per second), the MFSN technicians pointed at 30fps camera at a television screen showing the 10fps video feed.
