EDGERTON GERMESHAUSEN AND GRIER INC LAS VEGAS NV
Pagination or Media Count:
Project 39.4c was organized to provide remotely-operated photographic coverage of blast and thermal damage to physical structures on the Apple II shot of Operation Teapot. A total of 48 cameras were operated at distances from ground zero of from 2750 ft. to 10500 ft. Both external and internal camera stations were utilized. Results were generally quite successful. In most cases the view is obstructed by the dust cloud very shortly after shock arrival, but the records do show the mode of failures.
