Full story: http://www.jodrellbank.manchester.ac.uk ... -apollo11/Dramatic and previously unheard recordings of the moment the Russians tried to gatecrash the American's Moon landing in 1969 have today been released by The University of Manchester's Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics.
The recordings were made in the Control Room of the famous Jodrell Bank Observatory, where astronomer Sir Bernard Lovell and colleagues were listening to transmissions coming from the moon.
They were buried in the archives until astronomers at Jodrell Bank started researching material to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Moon landings ...
The recording, together with a commentary by the founder of the Jodrell Bank Observatory, Sir Bernard Lovell, can be heard here: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/u ... 625913.ece
(EDIT) Sorry the Times Online link has stopped working atm - even when clicked on from the Jodrell Bank website. I've noticed this lately with Times Online links - should be ok again soon, hopefully.
