The NASA Video Catalog cites video and motion picture productions listed in the NASA scientific and
technical information database.
The videos were developed by the NASA centers, covering space shuttle mission press conferences;
fly-bys of planets; flight vehicle design, testing, and performance; environmental pollution; lunar and
planetary exploration; and many other subjects related to manned and unmanned space exploration.
The collection of motion pictures recently digitized from original 16mm films, document some
aerodynamics testing and other research performed at Langley Research Center from 1958 through 1979.
High-resolution QuickTimeŽ format DVDs are now available for purchase. Citations include links to
online low- and medium-resolution previews.
