Series 6: Space photography


Scope and Contents

Multiple sets and individual photographic and photomechanical prints from the Office of Public Information at the National Air and Space Administration's Jet Propulsion Labratory (NASA, JPL), donated by Kenneth Oslund, former JPL scientist.

Prints are organized by space voyage, and subjects include rockets, planets and planetary satellites (commonly moons.)

The reverse of most prints show information about the image and the voyage.
