The Dennis Jenkins Digital Only Space Collection contains space related images collected by Mr. Jenkins and covers all major
American space programs.
This is a collection of images concerning the United States (mainly) space program, with a concentration on the Space Shuttle
Program that ran between 1969 and 2011.
Space Shuttle Mission Photos Folder
This is a collection of some 170,000 images covering all Space Shuttle flights. Almost all are from official NASA sources,
although some private photos exist within the collection. Flights after the Columbia accident (STS-107) contribute a significant
number of these images due to two factors: an official desire to better document the flights for engineering purposes, and
the advent of digital photography that greatly reduced the cost and complexity of taking and archiving large numbers of images.
Many on-orbit images, taken by either the Orbiter crew or the crew of the International Space Station, exist for the later
flights, again due mostly to the advent of digital photography. The images are organized with each flight having an individual
folder named after the mission designation. Within each folder, particularly for the later flights, there are subfolders that
attempt to subdivide the images into more workable segments.
Approx 167,000 images the Library server and on the DAMS.
Images related to the US Space Program, and in particular the Space Shuttle.
