Dear JPL data archivists,

Can we please see the raw images of the Pale Blue Dot now?
Its been 22 years! blink.gif

Both my daughters (one finishing college and one about to go) were both born after 1990!
..and the computers we have now have speeds greater than 16Mhz, and with memory space greater than 32Meg <really!>

<well...except for my still running 1974 DEC PDP8 with a blazing clock speed of 1.2Mhz and 24KILO-bytes of core memory....>

That would be nice.
BTW, some images from beginning of mission are unavailable too. For example famous images of Earth and Moon.

I'd like to get my hands on those as well.

John, I think he's referring to the V1(?) post-launch shot of the Earth & Moon in the same frame.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Yes, that's it. wink.gif

It wasn't and still I don't see it in archive. Two known sets of images are missing in archive. 1990's well known "Family portrait" and 1977's images of the Earth and Moon.
And of course, it's possible that there are some other, generally unknown images.
I think, that is good idea to digitally archive all older NASA's data and make them online, because classic magnetic tapes or even papers are not very safe. For some older data, even people from NASA archives don't know, where they are.
For example, original digital raw images from Mariner 4, or digital raw data from Pioneer 10 and 11 imaging photopolarimeters.

Emily! I saw your presentation on the Voyager 35th video, can't wait to see the full set of images! After 6 years, this thread will finally have closure.

smile.gif I have the data, but am still not sure if I'm permitted to post it or not. It's been a while since I've asked about this, so I'll ping them again.

No pressure, it's just good to know it hasn't vanished, and that there are now backups. smile.gif
