NASA Aeronautics And Space Report films
« on: October 24, 2020, 10:06:26 AM »
NASA Aeronautics And Space Reports were frequently published updates on work at NASA, future missions and progress on science being conducted in space.

I've collected several of these 16mm reels and with the help of the dutch Tivoli Observatory and Patreons can get them digitized  :)

These old films often have colour casts that I have to restore before uploading the films to YouTube.

Here is the first of my reels:

Not just NASA, but many American military and aerospace projects published quarterly report films.  These are your best sources for behind-the-scenes and how-we-did-it film footage.  I'm so pleased there is an effort to finding and restoring these films.  And yes, the dye shifting is prominent in many of them.  They were considered ephemera at the time and were not always stored with care beyond the 3-6 months during which they were relevant.

I have the Spacecraft Films set; it'll be interesting to compare the DVD version to the restored version.
