George Robert Carruthers

George Robert Carruthers was an inventor, physicist, engineer, and space scientist.


Carruthers specialized in crafting a powerful ultraviolet camera and spectrograph for NASA. He was the leading designer of the telescope that went to the moon as part of NASA’s Apollo 16 mission in 1972🔭⠀

The spectrograph/telescope observed radiation and other properties in space so the astronauts could use the camera to record the Earth’s external atmosphere. Carruthers camera was specifically formatted to electronically intensify photos from space through a series of lenses, prism and mirror by the conversion of photons to electrons.
