The Eagle has Landed
This TV camera was developed by Westinghouse in 1968 for the Apollo 11 lunar
landing. The Westinghouse Lunar Surface Camera was used to broadcast Neil
Armstrong's first steps on the Moon, as well as the following five Apollo
missions that would also land astronauts on the Moon.
While this camera never flew, it was most likely used for tests and training
for the Apollo 11 mission. All TV cameras used on the Moon were left behind to
allow for more Lunar soil samples to be brought back to Earth.
