The Exploration of Outer Space With Cameras

Authors


Abstract

This monograph “chronicles the use of television cameras and other visual imaging systems by NASA on unmanned outer space probes and in the exploration of the Solar System's planetary bodies.”

The book is technically well organized and a nicely printed volume with the unfortunate exception of the 32 illustrative plates that are of nothing less than abysmal quality. Included in the selection of pictures are a number of classic Voyager color photographs, but the high contrast black and white renditions in this volume convey little of their original beauty or information content.
