New personal project up: Space Get! Sputnik 1’s 50th anniversary seemed like a good day to announce this: Space Get, “a sticky ball for spaceflight images, videos, and other space media.”

I often entertain my inner frustrated astronaut by seeking out popular and obscure historical rocket launch and spaceflight media from the heyday of the Space Age, and I found myself wishing that someone would collect and tag links to this stuff in one spot so that people like me could find specific mission media from a single source. Then I realized — that someone could be me, with a simple Blogspot site and a bit of perseverance.

So, in the four days I’ve been doing this it’s just been a few space videos, an image, and a WAV file, but I intend to post links to stuff from missions in Sputnik, Vostok, Voshkod, Soyuz, Salyut, Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, STS, ISS, Orion, JPL, LPL, GSFC, MSFC, SpaceshipOne, SpaceshipTwo, Space-X, Bigelow, and other programs as I go along. Fittingly, the first post goes “beep.”

Also vote for it on Metafilter Projects and Digg.
