Abstract
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) utilizes many different types of photographic instrumentation systems and motion picture cameras for recording the events that take place in support of the United States Space Programs. There are many special camera systems, used both on board the Space Shuttle and for extra vehicular activity, which are located in the crew compartment areas, shuttle cargo bay and thermal enclosure, etc. This equipment can either be operated manually or can be remotely controlled. The cameras are used for numerous purposes, including crew operations and experiments, debris analysis, payload data recording, earth viewing, CRT test and graphics recording and other documentation.
