    The story woulda been waaaaayyyyyy better with some of the shots taken WITH the camera. And NASA shares all of their photos. Lazy 21st century journalism where first to post is more important than the best it can be.

    I've been trying to find some of those images on NASA's site but can't seem to find them.

    I actually can't believe that Hasselblad didn't buy it. Maybe they could reverse-engineer it and relearn how to make great cameras.

    I keep picturing Buzz Aldrin with a Lunar and start weeping:
