STUNNING NASA PICTURES ADDED TO 'AMESNEWS' WEB SITE
A stunning gallery of NASA pictures, with each image linked to news releases and other related items, recently was added to a NASA public affairs web site at:
Most images are provided in preview versions, as well as in higher resolution files. Almost all of the larger files are suitable for publication in newspapers and magazines. A help section describes various levels of quality, rights issues and how to download images through the Internet to a users computer.
"We redesigned how we present images to make the site more efficient to the news media, general public and students," said the image gallery's author, Anil Jindia, at NASA Ames Research Center, located in the heart of Californias Silicon Valley. "These images can help readers to better comprehend our news items."
"The new image gallery is part of a comprehensive re-design of the Web site," said Jonas Diño, the sites curator. "The Web site has been simplified to make sure people, including those with physical challenges, can easily access information."
General groups of images in the gallery include: 'Popular Images,' 'Aerospace,' 'Educational & Commercial Technology,' 'Information Technology,' 'Earth Sciences,' 'NASA/Ames/Moffett Field,' and 'Astrobiology.' Astrobiology is the study of the origin, evolution, distribution and future of life in the universe.
More pictures and image subject groups will be added over time. In addition, the amesnews site (at http://amesnews.arc.nasa.gov/) links to other NASA Ames scientific and technical Web pages, NASA Ames educational materials and the Ames employee newspaper, the Astrogram.
The Astrogram newsletter, though intended for employees, often contains newsworthy information of interest to a wider audience, including the general public and journalists. On-line issues of the Astrogram, beginning with the Jan. 1, 2000 newspaper, are in portable document format (PDF).
In addition, the Ames Education Web site includes a section describing the NASA Ames Educator Resource Center that has lesson plans, educational publications and audiovisual instructional materials.
