Snapshots from space history
UCL is the only UK host of a NASA Regional Planetary Image Facility (RPIF). On top of this, it has a long tradition in astronomy, geology and planetary science.
This website showcases a small selection of the historic space pictures in the RPIF, many of them never published online before, others only ever in low resolution.
This website has been launched as part of the Festival of the Planets and the European Planetary Science Congress 2013. A selection of images from the Regional Planetary Image Facility will be on show to the public during the public exhibition at the European Planetary Science Congress, on 10 and 12 September 2013. The demonstration will take place in the marquee in the main quadrangle at University College London (Gower Street, WC1E 6BT), from 2pm-4pm.
All pictures on this site can be reproduced freely - for guidance, see our usage guidelines.
