NASA camera
« on: June 25, 2008, 09:44:08 PM »
what modifications need to be made on a camera for it to function in outer space?

i watched this documentary of how NASA's mission to the moon in '69 was a fabricated conspiracy. they analyzed the pics. scrutinizing how a clear pic can be taken in outer space? now i am referring strictly to regular white light pics.

i never had much interest in astrophysics but i wonder... (original question)

what modifications need to be made on a camera for it to function in outer space?

Everything in that "documentary" was 100% complete B.S., fyi.

No modifications are really required for a camera to work in space, other then making sure it can survive the harsh conditions. It might not work well, but it will work.

what an essay! thanQ! i feel like i got a crash course (outline at least) in astrophysics

i was doubting the conspiracy myself bc the person who showed it to me has a habit of following these types of things. the camera modifications were tough for me to find bc the keywords i was using came up often. a few hours after i posted this thread, i found the following site.

btw- perhaps a regular camera would work, but i was more interested in the changes which produce optimal quality pics for astronauts.
