GREENBELT, Md., July 20 (UPI) -- NASA says it's posting historical video, audio, photographs and documents to iTunes to observe the 43rd anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

The material will be available for free download on iTunes U, a platform for making educational resources available to a wide audience through the iTunes Store, the space agency said in a release Friday.

NASA's History Program Office iTunes U site currently contains about 300 items from a broad sweep of NASA activities related to important moments, activities and figures in the space agency's history.

"New materials will continue to be uploaded as we expand the coverage both in depth and breadth," Bill Barry, NASA's chief historian, said. "We're thrilled to educate people on NASA's rich history and are open to user suggestions and requests."
