"SpaceRef reports that NASA and Arizona State University have teamed up to offer all of NASA's Apollo lunar films online at no charge. The images are scanned from the original films at high resolution, then offered as 16-bit TIFF or 8-bit PNG or ISIS files. The project is expected to take 3 years, but some images are already available. The ASU-NASA website is located at the Arizona State University Apollo Image Archive."
Because of my father I am more than interested in the history of the Apollo missions and the design of the spacecraft. I tried downloading a lo-res movie today but it stalled. I will keep trying. If I get one, and if it is legal for me to do so, I will post it here.
