Hardware, Wide Angle Camera, LROC

National Air and Space Museum
These are parts associated with the Wide Angle Camera (WAC) from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft.

The WAC is a CCD camera equipped with a wide baffle. It can capture broad images in five visible light bands and two ultraviolet light bands. Images from the WAC have been used to produce detailed photomosaic maps of the Moon. LRO arrived at the Moon in 2009.

This flight spare instrument is identical to the flown instrument built by Malin Space Science Systems. NASA transferred the camera to the Museum in 2016.

Tool, Right Angle Drive

National Air and Space Museum
The high-torque Right Angle Drive tool (RAD 10-20) was developed for EVA tasks on the Shuttle-Mir docking adapter but also proved useful for Hubble Space Telescope servicing and other missions, giving the astronauts access to obstructed bolts that could not be readily seen or reached. The drive tool attaches at the shaft end to either the pistol-grip power tool or the palm-wheel mechanical wrench from the standard EVA tool kit, and at the drive end it has a 3/8-inch square interface for a socket tool. It has a 2 to 1 torque multiplication for 80 ft. lbs. torque. The tool was first used on the STS-82 Space Shuttle mission in 1997 and became part of the EVA tool kit for subsequent missions.

This tool is an unflown duplicate. NASA transferred it to the Museum in 2001.

Astronomers see supernova from a new angle

Smithsonian Insider

"Just like mirrors in a changing room show you a clothing outfit from all sides, interstellar dust clouds act like mirrors to show us different sides of the supernova," Rest explains.

Plane Approaches Runway at an Extreme Angle

Smithsonian Channel
Witnesses to the August 18, 1993 crash of American International Airways Flight 808 described the plane turning towards the runway at an angle of almost 90 degrees – a clear sign of trouble. From the Series: Air Disasters: Borderline Tactics https://bit.ly/32AyM8i

Pamphlet, Solution of Right Angled Triangles

National Museum of American History
This small pamphlet consist of fifteen rectangular sheets of paper cut from a blueprint and stapled together on the left side. It has drawings and formula for the solution of right angled triangles, as well as tabulated values of openings required for plugs of differing sizes and different angles of opening. The pamphlet was owned by machinist and museum specialist George A. Norton. It may date from the time he worked as a machinist in the Washington Naval Gun Factory.

Geometric Model by A. Harry Wheeler, Trihedral Angle

National Museum of American History
This cut and folded tan paper model has on the outside a tetrahedron open on one face (not a regular tetrahedron). It contains a moveable folded triangle.

A paper tag on the outside reads: 274. A mark on the base reads: Trihedral Angle (/) A. Harry Wheeler (/) 1916.

Geometric Model by A. Harry Wheeler, Dihedral Angle

National Museum of American History
This brown (wood grain) and tan plastic model shows two intersecting planes (in brown) and a sector of a circle bounded by them (in tan).

For a related pattern, see 1979.0102.109. The pattern is named DIH, this model has a tag that reads: DA. Another tag on the model reads: A. Harry Wheeler.

The pattern is dated March 10, 1945, hence the rough date assigned to the model.

Lens, Wide Angle, Television Camera, Apollo 13

National Air and Space Museum
This Fairchild wide-angle television camera lens, used with an RCA television camera during the Apollo 13 mission, allowed the astronauts to show a wider view of the spacecraft interior during broadcasts to Earth. Due to the explosion in the Service Module after their first television broadcast, the camera and lens were used only once.

NASA transferred this lens to the Museum in 1973.
