This is exciting:
Nearly 40 years after man first walked on the moon, the complete lunar photographic record from the Apollo project will be accessible to both researchers and the general public on the Internet. A new digital archive – created through a collaboration between Arizona State University and NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston – is making available high-resolution scans of original Apollo flight films.
They are available to browse or download at: apollo.sese.asu.edu.
There’s not much there yet…but there will be!
How high-resolution? At full scale, you can see the grain of the film. Which is why a negative 4.7″ square creates a file 1.3 gigabytes in size.
I like digital cameras, but I’ve always known they still don’t come close to capturing the amount of information that film is capable of.
