Abstract : During the course of two previous tests, it was decided that too much light was being reflected from the Centaur bulkhead and painting of the bulkhead was proposed as a possible solution. The object was to determine a type of dye or paint color that will exhibit the best reflectance characteristics for viewing the inside of the liquid hydrogen tank using the telemetry television camera.
