    I believe that the TV Camera on Apollo 12 got damaged by holding it into the sun. I don’t think it transmitted any color TV.

      It transmitted for about an hour. It was damaged when being moved from the MESA to the tripod.

        I think I remember seeing Al Bean and Pete Conrad at that year’s Emmy Awards with a short footage of Bean moving the camera from the MESA to the tripod and the inadvertent pointing of the camera into the sun frying the vidicon. I couldnt believe it when it happened………http://www.hq.nasa.gov/alsj/ApolloTV-Acrobat5.pdf

        It was about an hour. I saw the EVA while in college, but on a monochrome TV (color TVs were expensive in 1969).

    Wow, I aced it. I had to guess for #7 – which of Neil’s feet touched first, and had to count on one hand the number of moonwalkers left, almost forgetting the most recent death.

    Great quiz, Mark!

      I had to replay the first step video in my mind… watching Armstrong holding onto the LM facing the camera, then testing the surface with his left foot.

      I only wish Neil had finally cleared up the “one step for man” vs “one step for A man” controversy before he left us. Personally, I cannot hear the “A”, nor is there space enough between his words “for” and “man” for “A” to fit in.

      I guess we’ll never know now. 🙁

    That was a good quiz. Though I didn’t understand the hint on the first question. “\”

    I missed the quiz. I’m as rubbish as before though!

    I thought the color tv question might be a trick question as it did not work for long before it was turned into the sun. Hard to believe only 7 of the 12 are left among us. Got it right, but it gave me pause. Thanks for the confidence boost on the ace. As far as which foot Neil placed first, Inonly had to gaze on my Paul Calle Great Moment print to confirm my suspicions.

    Boy, I didn’t remember that the Apollo 12 TV camera was color! Best results I ever got on one of your quizzes, Mark. I do remember watching and being upset when the camera failed. Conrad and Bean were the most happy-go-lucky lunar explorers!
