DescriptionColor photograph of a new space color TV camera that can function under lunar lighting conditions ranging from dawn to high noon is displayed at RCA's Astro-Electronics Division, Princeton, N.J. RCA is under contract to NASA's Manned Spacecraft Center to build two of the cameras, which are immune to damage from bright light, even when pointed directly at the sun. The foil-like material on the side of the camera is thermal blanket designed to help protect the camera against extremes of heat and cold encountered in space.
