A visual history of decades of space exploration with NASA

In 2019, in order to celebrate 60 years of NASA, the Google Arts & Culture Lab created a vast visual archive. A collection of some of the best images captured by NASA for us to explore and enjoy. 

Using NASA’s public API, Google has put its machine learning to work exploring a vast collection of historic photos dating all the way back to 1915. This archive includes 127,000 images that have been analysed and categorised for us to journey through.

We’ve put together a selection of our favourites to whet your appetite.
