Next year in July 2019 we will be marking the 50th anniversary of NASA’s first manned lunar landings.  Back in 2009, Tape Ark Founder and CEO Guy Holmes was working on restoring some invaluable and historical data from those moon landings relating to “Moon Dust” with renowned Australian scientist Professor Brian O’Brien.  It is still a great story to watch – and not just because Guy actually has some hair back then!!
