If you've seen movies of the Apollo launches, you will have seen the shots of the rocket stages being jettisoned. There is one frequently-used shot of the separator ring being detached, and it falling lazily back towards Earth. My problem is this: it would appear that the only way some of these shots could have been taken would be if the camera was attached to a rocket stage which was subsequently jettisoned. So how was the camera recovered?
