This is such an excellent initiative for science and impassioned amateurs. The work will be long and intensive, but will be well worth it for so many reasons. :)

Indeed! :)

It's a shame I won't be around to see it finished. 

And by which time they would have found a new way of storing data with even better resolution and images and have to start all over again.

50 years is ambitious, the smithsonian collection is massive and growing. It’s so massive that some joke artifacts were placed in drawers at various times in the past I’ve read, and only now are people noticing them.
