Gallery of vintage NASA images


On the Submitterator, reader Parker offers up a Flickr gallery full of great old NASA images for our viewing enjoyment.

Hey BoingBoing - I saw that you recently published some vintage Soviet space images. I thought you guys might also be interested in this huge gallery of vintage NASA pictures I uploaded from an old burned CD I had kicking around. Flickr users have been going through and adding descriptions of the people, vehicles, and more in the images. .....

I'm amused by the Cold War implications of Parker's pitch—never let it be said that BoingBoing is biased in favor of cosmonauts—and doubly amused by the first photo I clicked on, which shows what I believe to be the crew of Apollo 11 enjoying a hearty guffaw with Richard Nixon. This shot just screams, "Caption me!" doesn't it?
