“NASA ties up with Internet Archive to digitise and manage space imagery - 28 Aug 2007

The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has announced a five-year agreement with nonprofit organisation Internet Archive, US, to scan, archive and manage the Agency’s vast collection of photographs, historic film and video. The imagery will be available through the Internet for free to the public, historians, scholars, students and researchers.”

NASA’s 20 different major imagery collections online will soon be merged into one big file within Internet Archives. The first year, these imagery collections will be added; the second year, digital imagery; and the third year, analog imagery will be analyzed and added.

Internet Archive and NASA will work on software that allows new images to be captured, cataloged, and added automatically to the Archive.

Here is the press release.
