Planetary imaging


The Centre for Planetary Sciences hosts of one of NASA’s Regional Planetary Imaging Facilities and is only one of seven outside the USA. The UCL RPIF forms part of The Geology Collections, part of UCL Museums and Collections.

Our archive includes images and other data from almost all of the NASA planetary missions since the 1960s, covering all the planetary bodies in the solar system which have been surveyed to date by spacecraft.

The data are in the form of photographic prints, negatives, slides, maps, mission information, planetary publications, and CD-ROMS. Much of the data and many of the publications are rare and cannot be found anywhere else.

The archive is open for public tours and other events, such as the Festival of Geology, and also every 3rd Wednesday of every month from 12-1pm.

To make an appointment, please contact Dr. Peter Grindrod. Telephone: 020 7679 2577 (internal: 32577).
