The BCE Heartbeat
"Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day!"
As a child in Mexico, Guillermo González Camarena was interested in taking electronics apart to understand what made them work. At age 23, his tenacity paid off when he was awarded a patent for the very first color television transmission system. When he realized that his invention would be prohibitively expensive for low income families, he created a simplified bicolor system in 1963 to ensure that his technology would be accessible to everyone. His work provided a foundation for the modern color televisions that followed, and his bicolor system played a key role for an important NASA mission, transmitting the first color images of Jupiter from the Discovery I in 1979.
