NASAimages.org is the most comprehensive compilation of NASA photograph, films, and video from both past and present. New material is being added to NASAimages.org on a regular basis in the form of both current and newly digitized media from the archives of various NASA centers. This site combined for the first time 20 major NASA imagery collections into a single, searchable online resource when it was launched in July of 2008. Since then, users have downloaded over 3.5 terabytes of information.
NASA selected Internet Archive, a non-profit digital library based in San Francisco, through a competitive process to help create and manage the NASA Images Web site under a non-exclusive Space Act agreement, signed in July 2007. The project is at no cost to the taxpayer and the images are free to the public.
The goal of NASAimages is to increase our understanding of the earth, our solar system and the universe beyond in order to benefit humanity.
