Lift off through 60 years of NASA exploration
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 space agency.
