NASA's Top 50

Air & Space magazine has a "top 50" slideshow of the best images from NASA's archives. Above is just one example of what's a great collection of images from manned and unmanned flights, as well as other historical moments of note. Well worth a look.

In Silicon Valley we of course have our own NASA facility, the AMES research laboratory, along with the famed balloon shed on Moffett field that local conservationsists are currently trying to preserve. Oh, and of course that's all helped by being right next door to Google who, in exchange for landing and parking rights, allow NASA to play with their company planes, build new buildings and generally make nice with their scholarly neighbours in exchange for limited access to all those web-vertising dollars.

Seems fair.
