A golf ball which an astronaut had claimed was 'lost' on the moon after a massive golf swing has been found 50 years later.
Astronaut Alan Shepard famously took a golf swing with makeshift iron and balls during his 1971 Apollo 14 Mission.
Hitting two balls, he originally claimed one had gone into a crater and the other had travelled 'miles and miles'.
Image specialist Andy Saunders managed to enhance high-resolution scans of the footage from the original mission using a 'stacking technique' including smaller 16mm footage shot by the crew.This showed that the first ball had actually only travelled 24 yards from Shepard while the second flew just 40 yards.
Yet despite the new revelations, Saunders said it was still a significant achievement that Shepard was able to hit the ball while on the moon.
The restored images are set to feature in Saunders' upcoming book, 'Apollo Remastered'.Follow the Official Rokna NEWS Telegram Channel For More and fresh NEWS.
