Catalogue Note

A hologram is a photographic recording of a light field, used to display and view a fully three-dimensional image under diffuse ambient light without the aid of any intermediate optics. 

McDonnell Douglas was a major aerospace manufacturing and defense contractor that provided air and spacecraft simulators for the Mercury and Gemini manned space programs. Its subsidiary, McDonnell Douglas Electronics Company, housed a pulsed-laser holography laboratory until 1973, when when the corporation decided that the market for holograms was proving too elusive to pursue any further.
