  • News - Building a Cheap Thermoca… | about 3 years ago

    The “cameras” on the Viking Mars landers used oscillating mirrors to scan a single photodetector.
    I remember a group picture of the crew that built it with some crew members repeated. Theose on one side of the group had run behind the camera and posed again on the other side while the camera was scanning.

No public wish lists :(
