Space!

NASA doesn’t have one of the prettiest sites on the internet, but it is the most dynamic and vital among American government sites. A little digging and a user can unearth all sorts of treasures. A great one is the Apollo 11 Image Library, which features high and low quality scans of almost every single photograph the Apollo 11 crew took during their flight. There are hundreds of images on that page, from the familiar, iconic images NASA released following the mission, to a few shots when Neil Armstrong or Buzz Aldrin accidentally hit the shutter on their cameras while they were pointed at the ground. It’s an archival page, and NASA, to their credit, shows just about all they have…except for the aliens…or Kubrick. Here are a few of my favorites:
