This portable color television camera (unflown) is identical to that used aboard the Skylab space station in 1973-1974. The crew members had a variety of cameras to record their activities in space. A TV camera was used for experiments, press conferences, tours, and several "classroom in space" broadcasts to demonstrate the effects of weightlessness. NASA transferred this camera and various other Skylab equipment to the Museum when the program ended.
