RCA, Television, and the Moon: Talk by Sam Russell


This is an online zoom webinar - required registration at https://tcnj.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Mgf55NlhThmQ84qMvyZkmw

As a kid, Sam Russell grew up tinkering with electronics and dreaming of travel to the moon. Fascinated by the prospects of the Apollo project, he joined the team at RCA's Astro division to help bring the final three Apollo lunar explorations into the living rooms of hundreds of millions of people. Come hear about Russell's experiences working on the Apollo missions and the history of the development of the camera and communication systems he helped build.

This event is held in conjunction with the Sarnoff Collection’s new exhibit, In Living Color, which can be toured virtually at https://sarnoff.omeka.net/exhibits/show/in-living-color
