Camera on the Moon
Posted: Thu May 28, 2009 4:07 pm
When the first camera was landed on the moon, it shot precisely two hundred and three frames before it failed. The first fifty three showed the moon dust thrown up by the landing slowly settling to the ground. The following twenty two were mostly obliterated by direct rays of the sun flashing in the lens. The next 127 showed an unchanging and rather bleak landscape. Some described this cold wasteland as the last place you would ever go. The final frame showed a glimpse of the thing that caused the cameras failure, a parrot pecked the lens. Nobody expected that.
