NASA partners with Internet Archive

According to a press release, NASA and Internet Archive on Thursday “made available the most comprehensive compilation ever of NASA’s vast collection of photographs, historic film and video…. [T]he Internet site combines for the first time 21 major NASA imagery collections into a single, searchable online resource.”

The Internet Archives says that it entered into an agreement with NASA in 2007 to create this service, but that the it receives no financial support from NASA. The project is currently funded through a grant from the Kahle-Austin Foundation and and IA is encouraging users of the site to help support this project.
