29 items; circa 1990: The NASA series consists of dubs on Betacam and U-Matic videocassettes. We believe that this footage was collected for a story that was done by WJZ on Payload Specialist Samuel T. Durrance, Principal Research Scientist in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland. He is a co-investigator for the Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope, one of the instruments of the Astro Observatory.
