S69-57219 (October 1969) --- This modified camera, equipped to transmit color television, has been selected for use on the Apollo 12 lunar landing mission, scheduled for liftoff at 11:22 a.m. (EST), Nov. 14, 1969. Here, a Westinghouse engineer adjusts the camera before it is placed in a thermal vacuum chamber at Westinghouse Defense and Space Center in Washington, D.C., where the camera was developed and built for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Corrections were made in the late days of prelaunch activity to assure color transmission from the Apollo 12 mission.
