Here’s how Google describes NASA’s Visual Universe:

To celebrate 60 years of NASA and 50 years of Project Apollo, the Google Arts & Culture Lab has created NASA’s Visual Universe – an experiment drawing on NASA’s vast image archive.

Using NASA’s public API, we explored 127,000 historic images stretching back to 1915, and analyzed them using machine learning – bringing surprising and interactive results.

We especially used Google Cloud Natural Language to extract keywords and information from the archive.

Explore NASA’s rich history of discoveries, missions, and science, search a term, and discover more about the world’s favorite space agency.


I’m adding it to The Best Images Taken In Space (even though many of its photos are earth-bound)
