SA-7 16mm Motion-Picture Camera

MSFC developed two types of cameras for the Saturn I. The SA-7 mission camera on display is a Model B used for "indirect viewing" of hard-to-reach areas such as inside a propellant tank. A flexible fiber-optic tube enabled the camera to see around corners. Model A cameras were used for "direct viewing" of events such as stage separation.
