WikiArchives.Space was created in August 2020 by Vincent Heidelberg, creator of the french Youtube channel Stardust. The goal is to create the largest and most accurate space archive available, FOR FREE. No ads, no paywall. It's a non profit project created to help content creators, historians, and space geeks around the world.
Current version of the website is v1.5, using the CMS Piwigo
Current version features (v1.5) :-Each pic is manually added, sorted, captionned and investigated by an archivist to get a context. -All pictures are free to download and their conditions of use are specified in the image page (License section). Mostly, Public domain and Creative Commons -"Staff Pick" that show you our favourite pics of the month
Features to come (v2.0 and later) : -Community adding and modifications (as any wiki) and ranking based on the trust of the amateur achivists to allow them more or less power on the website-Video and documents (rocket manuals, weather briefings, payload manifests, etc...) as long as they are public domain -Scanning expeditions in the national archives (will require donations)
