NASA just launched a huge, free library of incredible space pictures

Rob Waugh

NASA has launched a library of 140,000 of its most iconic images – from manned space missions to satellite images of Mars.

The NASA Image and Video Library is fully searchable – and puts together imagery from 60 separate NASA collections into one place.

The new library shows off a Flickr-style display of the space agency’s latest images – and also lets users search by ‘Popular’ images to find NASA’s most iconic pictures easily.

All images are available in hires, and there are also audio files and video files, which will be continually updated.

NASA says, ‘NASA Image and Video Library allows users to search, discover and download a treasure trove of more than 140,000 NASA images, videos and audio files from across the agency’s many missions in aeronautics, astrophysics, Earth science, human spaceflight, and more.

‘The library is not comprehensive, but rather provides the best of what NASA makes publicly available from a single point of presence on the web. Additionally, it is a living website, where new and archival images, video and audio files continually will be added.
