    Thought to be Selected Originals from late 1940s material.

    New Mexico. A camera which travelled on a V-2 rocket recorded shots of the world from 65 miles up.

    Various shots of the camera, which travelled in the fin of the rocket, it is taken intact from the metal container. M/S of the V2. C/U of the aperture in the fin of the rocket where the camera travelled. M/S as it takes off. It hurtles upwards and we see the earth from the rocket, including the first recorded pictures of the edge of the world. M/S of the rocket from the ground.

    Possibly connected with 46/95 - MD.
