Space Television

Space Television

 

direct transmission and reception of pictures from a spacecraft in space or on the surface of another planet. Television signals transmitted by a space station’s onboard equipment are received by a ground radio communications station and then transmitted to a television center, which relays the signals to television networks of the USSR, European countries, and America. Space television dates from August 1962, when pictures of the cosmonauts A. G. Nikolaev and P. R. Popovich were transmitted from the Vostok 3 and Vostok 4 spacecraft. The maximum transmission range was achieved in December 1968 during a television transmission from the Apollo 8 spacecraft as it circled the moon with astronauts F. Borman, J. Lovell, and W. Anders aboard.
