During an extra-terrestrial 2003 chill session, our astronaut buddy Don Pettit cobbled together a fancy tripod using ordinary objects (found aboard a space station) that enabled space photographers, like himself, to capture sharper images in orbit. But now it seems his invention may have worked too well, as NASA is now bogged down by an oppressive number of space photographs, and they need your help. In what amounts to a Kickstarter appeal for your free time and geographical awareness, NASA is asking ordinary folks to help sort the roughly 1.8 million images currently uncategorized in NASA’s iPhoto library.

One photo that should leap out as familiar is Don Pettit’s photograph of Southern California, which appears on the cover of Personal Space: Electronic Soul 1974-1984. This is a longwinded way of saying that all remaining CD copies of Personal Space are now available on our website, and make a great soundtrack for sorting through 1.8 million space photographs, should you feel so inclined.
