Description (in English)

Investigation on image production method based on the launch of a helium ballon to the Stratosphere (20 kilometers high up). The balloon carried a payload with an experiment using three black and white video cameras with color filters in front in order to produce a final video in full color. The color process implemented is based in the one designed and patented by Gonzalez Camarena in 1938, the chromoscopic adapter (invented for color television, Mexico, 1939-40).
