One of the (many) cool things about NASA is that, as a government-run organization, media created by NASA is considered public domain. There are a few exceptions to this (mainly when NASA works with a company or university, the resulting works might be copyrighted by the other party…), but it still makes NASA a wonderful source for legal content that students can include in their projects.
- Need a spacecraft for that sci-fi animation your kids are making? This Apollo 9 Command Module looks easy to cut out.
- Need a b-roll of rocket launches ? Got you covered.
- Maybe you need some creepy ambient sound? Saturn’s radio emissions likely fit the bill.
- Oh, and high-resolution images of Pluto, because we all know it’s everyone’s favorite dwarf planetoid.
This is a great resource for any (multi-)media project with a
STEM STEAM slant to it., made better by the fact that you can even narrow your search by a range of years using the slider on the left.
Oh, one last tip: Looking for something that can just be a cool wallpaper? Search for the word “nebula.”
