Spanning more than 50 years of space exploration, this gallery brims with over 1000 high-resolution images from NASA's archives, from black-and-white pictures of early rocket and airplane tests to recent stunners of colliding galaxies snapped by the Hubble Space Telescope. Besides beautiful shots, the offerings include photos of famous figures—such as rocket pioneer Wernher von Braun, a former German SS officer who masterminded manned flights to the moon—and momentous occasions, like astronaut Neil Armstrong standing on the moon in 1969.
