McDonalds, Nasa, and Shit: mostysignssomeportents NASA's Lunar Orbiter pics from 1967/8 were deliberately fuzzed and downsampled to hide US spying capabilities In 1967, the Lunar Orbiter missions sent back exciting - but grainy and low- rez photos of the moon's surface But it turns out that the Orbiters' photos were actually super-high-rez, shot on 70mm film and robotically developed inside the orbiters, with the negs raster-scanned at 200 lines/mm and transmitted to ground stations using an undisclosed lossless analog image-compression technology. These were stored on tapes read by fridge-sized $300,000 Ampex FR-900 drives. These images were printed out at 40' x 54' so the Apollo astronauts could stroll over them and look for a landing spot But these images were not revealed to the public because NASA feared that doing so would also reveal the US's spy satellite capabilities. Instead, NASA deliberately downrezzed and fuzzed the images that the public got to see. Ryan Smith tells the amazing story of the preservationists who rescued the images off of disintegrating FR-900 magnetic tapes starting in 2007, under JPL's Nancy Evans, who set up her team in an abandoned McDonald's building and dubbed the project "McMoon."

Bad, Beautiful, and Candy: UNSIGNED HYPE EMINEM Wow, it's been a few months since we've profiled a creme-de-la-creme MC in need of some nurtur- ing from a record company. During our ninety day hiatus, however, our ever-reliable "Flavortracker 2000" came across a target that, in many ways, redefines the term ill. He goes by the name of Eminem (as in the popular candy). After making a buzz in the Detroit area for quite some time, he just recently gained the hip-hop nation's atten tion with his impressive showing in events like the Rap Olympics. One glimpse of the contents within his Slim Shady demo, one can't help but recognize that this rapper of the Caucasian per- suasion's got skills As far as flow, he keeps it simple, yet extremely effective. In "Murder, Murder," he kicks a humorous tale about a bank heist gone wrong: "Left the keys in the van/ With a gat in each hand/ Went up in Eastland/ Shot a police- man/Fuck a peace plan/ If citizen bystands/ The shit is my hands/ Here's your life span/ For what your life's worth, this money is twice than/ Grab a couple grand and live in Iceland/See, I'm a nice man, but money turned me to Satan." Another guaranteed rewinder is the semi-demented "Just The Two Of Us," a crazed tale about the action Eminem takes upon his baby's mother. With wife placed comfortably in the back of his trunk, E drives far and wide explaining to his seed t reasons why "daddy had to bury mommy." Point blank, this ain't your average cat. T- Motor City kid is a one-of-a-kind talent and he about to blow past the competition, leaving mar melted microphones in the dust.
