One of those random things I was pondering today. On the moon landings they took still pictures. In fact, they used a Hasselblad camera. Now film is very temperature sensitive. The warmer it is, the faster the chemical reaction can happen when light hits it. Now space is very cold. But because the is no air to help dissipate heat when you are in the sunlight, it gets very hot. Was this camera just well insulated, or did it have it's own environment control system? Also, while I doubt it's the case, but would a vacuum affect the film exposure? IF so, was the camera made air tight?
