APOD for Telegram?

Post by Rauf » Tue May 16, 2023 9:35 am

Hello and good morning (at least it's morning here).
Is there an APOD channel on Telegram? I've been searching and haven't found anything.
Telegram is a communication platform available on Microsoft Windows, Android and iOS, with more than 1 billion downloads in Google Play.
If there is an APOD channel on Telegram, I really think it would be great, I even made a test channel to see how channels work in it and how each APOD can be posted daily.

Here's the link to the channel: https://t.me/Apod_test

Please note that the channel and it's features work way better if Telegram Desktop or android/iOS is installed.

Is it ok if I start making an archive of all APOD pictures in one Telegram channel? It'll take a very long time but I plan on doing it bit by bit.
I've already started to see how will it look like, here's the link: https://t.me/apodarchive

Yes, it is OK if you create an APOD channeld on APOD. That would be great! If done well, this could be considered a social media mirror similar to others that exist already. Please be sure to identify APOD and link back to the main APOD site at NASA. - RJN

Thank you very much! I am already working on the archive, but it's still a long way to be complete. I've tried to make it as similar to the main APOD website as possible. It includes all the hyperlinks, and if the hyperlink redirects you to another APOD, in the channel I made you will be redirected to that APOD INSIDE the channel. I've compiled up to August 1999, and when I'm done I'll let you know!
