    For those in and around Nashville.
    At the Frist this weekend:

    Lecture: Imaging Space from Space
    Saturday, January 10, 2:00 p.m.
    Rechter Room, FREE


    Dr. C. R. O’Dell, distinguished research professor of physics and astronomy at Vanderbilt University and founding project scientist for the Hubble Space Telescope at NASA, will lead a presentation concerning science imaging.

    During its first fifty years NASA has imaged the Earth in ways never before possible, and has sent back pictures from distant planets. A sampling of images will be presented, including pictures of what the universe looked like in its infancy, with special emphasis on images from the Hubble Space Telescope.

    One-hour minilab on the moon....

    Found this interesting. I did not know it at the time, but the lunar Orbiter mission in the late 60's used an on-board processing system to develop film which was subsequently scanned (analog). The scanned pictures of the moon surface from the film were sent to the earth via radio communication. The images were recreated on a CRT screen on earth and photographed with a 35mm camera. Pretty fascinating system using Kodak film and Bimat film developer. http://www.lpi.usra.edu/resources/lu...oduction.shtml

    This was done in space, or some movie studio

    Awesome! I wonder how they kept it from leaking in null-G.

    There is gravity on the moon, just no air (and thus no developer oxidation. )

    There was a longish thread about this just about a month ago.

    I think you might profit from merging both.

    And it was *around* the moon, not on it. I have often said that "Moonrise Earth" taken by this mission is my favorite electronic image ;-)

    A fascinating system...
    Lens caps and cable releases can become invisible at will. :D

    Bimat evolved out of Grant Haists work on monobaths!

    The most famous Earthrise over the moon was taken in color by the first crew to land on the moon. It was color transparency and printed from internegatives.

    OOPS.... After checking, the Earthrise over the moon was first taken by the manned orbital mission around the moon. The manned landing mission took the full earth shot!

    Rumor also has it that there a 'blad on the moon. If you can get your buns up there, it's yours, free!
