For the 90Gb file on the page it says:

NASA Blue Marble Next Generation RAW (90GB)

Which according to where Ifound it is a crap load of hi-def images.

Same with the 2.9Gb it is a single hi-def image of the Earth from orbit.

Don't worry the files are nothing illegal. Heck the government is passing out the files. :thumbsup: If the government is sharing them, then they must be legal. :flowers:
