NASA opens Space Imagery Library

Screen Shot of NASA Imagery Library siteNASA has opened it’s Space Imagery Library to the general public. This screen shot (I clipped a lot of the middle of the image where there was no information for this photo) shows that there are collections of images of the Universe, the Solar System, Earth, and the Astronauts. There also some workspace and software that will help you put together some embed imagery for your site — I played around a bit but didn’t try it out. So, have at it and let me know how it works out for you.

An article on Australian PC Authority says:

The 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.

That sounds terrific because I could spend hours looking at astronomical photos, videos, and other images because I find them all fascinating. As it is I love checking out the Astronomy Picture of the Day site. But, that’s beside the point here a couple of images from the NASA Imagery site that I thought were just gorgeous.

…..Space may be the final frontier but we can enjoy exploration through NASA many wonderfully informative, useful, and entertaining websites about science, space exploration, and all things astronomical. Have fun visiting this new resource. I did and will continue to explore it further.
