I've been messing around with a solar system model, and realized that there are NASA textures for all the planets/stars that are available for free under the creative commons with this disclaimer: "Distributed under Attribution 4.0 International license: You may use, adapt, and share these textures for any purpose, even commercially." I did a little more research and the official site says these textures can be used commercially if credit is given. I'm guessing this means using them in a stock photo would be sketchy. Does anyone know what the legal allowances are with using these textures?


I've attatched a mockup I did of the solar system, using those textures for all the planets and the stars in the back.

They are used in hundreds of thousands of stock assets so yes, it is legal.

Every single earth animation you see uses elements from NASA.
