Virtual Talk: Shooting the Apollo Moon Walks: RCA's Contribution to the Manned Space Program

Sunday May 31, 2020
1:30 PM

As a kid, Sam Russell grew up tinkering with electronics and dreaming of travel to the moon. Fascinated by the prospects of the Apollo project, he joined the team at RCA's Astro division to help bring the final three Apollo lunar explorations into the living rooms of hundreds of millions of people. Join us for a free Zoom talk as Russell discusses his experiences working on the Apollo missions and the history of the development of the camera and communication systems he helped build. This event is held in conjunction with the Sarnoff Collection's In Living Color exhibit, which has some models of these cameras (which you can visit virtually here). Register for the talk here.
