Archive.org und NASA bauen die größte Space-Pic-Datenbank, ever

Archive.org baut zusammen mit der NASA an der größten Space-Bilder-Datenbank ever und will damit das komplette Bildmaterial der Weltraumbehörde online verfügbar machen. Schon jetzt finden sich dort haufenweise Bilder, Videos und Illustrationen, alles in Whoohoo-HighRes inklusive Download, teilweise ist das ganze zwar noch etwas komisch zu bedienen, aber das wird schon.

NASA and Internet Archive, a non-profit digital library based in San Francisco, made available the most comprehensive compilation ever of NASA's vast collection of photographs, historic film and video Thursday. Located at www.nasaimages.org, the Internet site combines for the first time 21 major NASA imagery collections into a single, searchable online resource. A link to the Web site will appear on the www.nasa.gov home page.

The Web site launch is the first step in a five-year partnership that will add millions of images and thousands of hours of video and audio content, with enhanced search and viewing capabilities, and new user features on a continuing basis. Over time, integration of www.nasaimages.org with www.nasa.gov will become more seamless and comprehensive.
