This is one of the most incredible image archives I’ve ever had the pleasure of digging into. I knew that NASA routinely released images from their missions and I’ve seen plenty of images from the Apollo 11 mission, but never have I seen it so organized as this: The Apollo 11 Image Library.

Using DownThemAll! (and Firefox), I just downloaded all 1144 hi-res images from this archive which includes a ton of photos I had never seen before. Images from their training, press events, meetings, shuttle launch, and of course, their moon landing. Every single image is available in beautiful hi-res and with highly detailed descriptions. I can’t get enough of how amazing these images are. They’re definitely still inspiring after 40 years.

UPDATE: I did you all a favor and uploaded them to Flickr.
