WASHINGTON -- NASA and Internet Archive, a non-profit digital library based in San Francisco, made available the most comprehensive compilation ever of NASA's vast collection of photographs, historic film and video Thursday. Located at www.nasaimages.org, the Internet site combines for the first time 21 major NASA imagery collections into a single, searchable online resource. A link to the Web site will appear on the www.nasa.gov home page.

The site (http://www.nasaimages.org) has a current Google PR of 2/10. :)

My apologies 01101001,

It was a futile exercise at posting some out of the way low key subject and hoping not to be toseeked.
Thanks to totally-in-tune members here that would be like winning the lottery. :)

I will do a better verification of previous non-posting next time.

Nothing to apologize for. Any member with more than a handful of posts has likely been beaten to the punch on something. We're all trying to share cool stuff. I only mentioned earlier sources because I wanted people who were interested in your news be aware of the other news and especially subsequent commentary.

(My habit is to look at dates on releases, and if they more than a few hours old, get extra-suspicious that some other BAUT member might have reported it earlier. Still that doesn't always spare me from duplicating effort. There's a reason the verb ToSeek is part of BAUT jargon.)

Actually there are more than "a reason".

I will take the opportunity to express my gratitude for your efforts in particular, for keeping this board an up-to-date and comprehensive source.

Thank you 01101001 and please keep up the good work.
