Abstract

Photographic films used in the Skylab orbiting laboratory experienced changes in their response to radiant energy due to storage and use in the Skylab environment. All available data from flight film and premission tests were compiled and analyzed to quantify this environmental impact. This paper gives an overview of that evaluation, provides examples of flight film performance data, and summarizes the conclusions and recommendations derived.
