McDonalds Menu Features NASA Lunar Footage, Chicken-Scented Tape Player

Inside an abandoned McDonalds on the old Moffet Naval Airfield, one can find a group of dedicated digital archaeologists attempting to restore some 48000 lbs of 70mm tape featuring imagery from the lunar surface.
In order to do this they needed something to play the tapes. Fortunately, they were able to procure an old Ampex tape player that was discovered in a chicken coop and restore it with the help of the original designer. The footage taken during the Apollo missions is still the best imagery we have of the surface of the moon—and restoring this footage has become extremely important given NASA's plans to re-map the surface of the moon, hunt for new landing sites and find an area to set up a permanent human base.
