The NASA Archives. 60 Years in Space.


To celebrate the organization’s first 60 years in space, The NASA Archives features 400+ photographs and rare renderings—spanning the moon landing, rovers on Mars and more. Launched in 1958, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration was the world’s first civilian space agency with a focus on peaceful exploration—despite it being founded as part of the Space Race. With notes from science and tech journalists, NASA historians, former astronauts and more, this is a comprehensive and mind-boggling look back at how far we have gone into the unknown.
