Shuttle IMAX Camera

One of two IMAX cameras flown aboard the space shuttle that were donated to the Museum on April 4, 2012. Between 1984 and 1998, the 70mm cameras accompanied astronauts on 17 space shuttle missions offering stunning views of Earth from space and offered an up-close look at what it is like to live and work in a weightless environment.
