The most attention-grabbing products of NASA, bar none, are the pictures and videos produced by its years and years of spectacular projects, running from frail biplanes to magnificent Moon landings to probes winging their way to the stars. This webpage is a collection of resources for finding pictures, videos, and other imagery. Registered Library patrons can obtain videos through submitting a research request or an interlibrary loan request.

Jet Propulsion Lab - Images, data sets, and animations.
Repository, Johnson Space Center - Search by subject
or scene list or browse by series title. Includes ordering
of Remote Sensing Data (VRSD) - The visualizations
are derived from satellite data which has been color-enhanced
or otherwise processed to yield high-impact renderings
of hurricanes and other natural phenomena. Because of
this processing, these images should be viewed more
as works of art than as raw data suitable for quantitative
analysis. VRSD is an outgrowth of a past NASA program,
Public Use of Remote Sensing Data (RSD).
to the Planets, Jet Propulsion Lab - Images and
facts about the planets.
Picture of the Day (APOD) - Each day a new image
or photograph is featured. A searchable archive of past
pictures is available too.
