I am referencing a document, the Apollo Mission Simulator Instructor Handbook Volume 1, that I can't find on the internet. I see no reason why I shouldn't post this and make it generally available.

I'll post it on my own webserver for now, but I know some community members have been reluctant to visit self-hosted sites due to security/privacy concerns.

Is there a place such a document could find a permanent home on the internet? I have several others that might be of interest to the community if such a place exists.

    $\begingroup$ It seems like there are a few sites that might be willing to host information like that, but I don't know of any that openly advertise it. You could try, for example, asking the Planetary Society if they would be willing to host. $\endgroup$ – called2voyage Jul 30 '18 at 14:12
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, I didn't think of contacting organizations, I was thinking more along the lines of imgur for documents or something. I'll try contacting ALSJ and see if they have any interest. Great suggestion, thanks! $\endgroup$ – Organic Marble Jul 30 '18 at 14:15

    $\begingroup$ Oh, if you were looking for something more generic, there is the Internet Archive. It's not just for web pages. They keep archives of documents, among many other things. $\endgroup$ – called2voyage Jul 31 '18 at 12:13
  • $\begingroup$ They have an upload tool on their homepage. You may have to be logged in to use it. $\endgroup$ – called2voyage Jul 31 '18 at 12:13
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks again. Looks like Internet Archive will work fine. $\endgroup$ – Organic Marble Aug 1 '18 at 14:22

    $\begingroup$ If you ever do decide to do self-hosting on your own domain, I'd let the good folks at Charcoal know so they can whitelist you. $\endgroup$ – Machavity Aug 1 '18 at 18:34
  • $\begingroup$ @Machavity Thanks for the tip! I was unaware of that. $\endgroup$ – Organic Marble Aug 1 '18 at 18:36

    $\begingroup$ @Machavity Mind if I roll that into the answer as well? $\endgroup$ – called2voyage Aug 1 '18 at 19:17

    $\begingroup$ @called2voyage Sure. I love to plug Charcoal. Some of the unsung heroes of SE $\endgroup$ – Machavity Aug 1 '18 at 20:17

Moving my comment to an answer: there is the Internet Archive. It's not just for web pages. They keep archives of documents, among many other things.

If you're looking for something specific to space exploration, I'm not sure if there is a site specifically designed for uploading documents, but there may be sites interested in hosting your material. You could try, for example, contacting the Planetary Society.

If you do opt to self-host, let the good folks at Charcoal know so they can whitelist you. (Thanks, @Machavity!)
