Apollo Moon Project Photographic Record in New Digital Archive

Arizona State University and NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston have teamed up to make high-res scans of original Apollo flight films available online. The new archive’s available at .

There is a minimum amount of content available on the Web site at the moment — the project has just started and will take about three years to complete. About 36,000 images in total will be scanned, including about 600 35mm frames and about 4,600 panoramic camera frames.

You can see a preview of how the pictures are going to be scanned at . Each frame has a Web page, with several different sizes of images to download (I saw one original scan that was over a gig.) The frames have extensive details about where and when they were taken as well.

This is just the beginning for this archive, but one to keep an eye on.
