Now for the walk-around . . .
I just heard a story NASA had a surplus auction where some guy bought a pile of 2" Ampex video tapes for $218. It turned out that the original video tape of Armstrong stepping on the Moon was among them. He just sold it at auction for $1.8 million.

I saw it live on our black-and-white television set as it was happening back in 1969.

I am a bit surprised nobody pointed at the NASA channel on YouTube.
