    Color Processing at NASA space shuttle labs: the video

    Yep, that's 250,000 feet of 16, 35 and 70 film a week if I heard right!

    Oh was that process AND print. Wow.

    I wonder how it compares with PE's experience there.

    All that technology, gone. All those technicians and engineers with decades of experience, gone. USA manned space effort, all gone. I guess we can turn technology on and off like a spigot.

    What I find really amazing is I did not see any young faces... no 18-23 year olds... lotsa old guys with decades of experience.

    Close, but not quite

    EDIT: If you were a subscriber, I could refer you to PE's APUG gallery photos, which include photos he took at work at Cape Canaveral in the 1960s (and later?).

    They alone are worth the price of (APUG) admission.

    I guess he would not have left a Hasselblad on the moon.


    More impressive than the lab I found the number of 500 cameras.

    As well with the number of cameras is the dedicated staff to CLA the cameras. Oh and don't forget collimating the lenses. For 500 cameras..

    I was head of still photography at CCMTA for 18 months. I left long before the shuttle. Yes, I was there for the first astronauts and the first Saturn launch. I met 6 of the first 7 astronauts and etc... There are many posts here on that subject, so I will leave it at that.

    Why would one polish and re-coat a lens as stated in that video?
    I mean, at such a place any lens under threat of frontal damage would be covered; the same for atmospherical damage.
