    The Media Resource Center (MRC) provides a centralized location for access to thousands of still photo/digital images and video products available to domestic accredited news media, production companies, schools (or educational institutions), businesses, government entities, and civil and professional organizations. International requestors can download images from NASA or their International Partners’ websites. Arrangements can be made through the MRC to purchase those images that can’t be located on a Johnson Space Center’s website or for those that are only available for download in LoRes. This collection covers NASA's programs and achievements, including historical programs through current and upcoming space shuttle and International Space Station missions and future programs. Requests for this imagery must be submitted in writing.

    Overall, allow 5 business days for your order to be processed and sent to you.
