NASA has released a free HD iPad app which features live streaming video from NASA Television, an interactive map with links to all the agency’s field centers , quick links to feature stories and launch schedules, a scrolling “alerts banner,” and a NASA featured link, with the first featured link focusing on women in space.
The solar system is featured on the app’s landing page, giving users the chance to learn more about our neighbourhood, the universe, and NASA missions. The app also features the facility to search updated, higher resolution NASA Image of the Day and Astronomy Picture of the Day collections and agency videos on demand.
You can download the app here for free."Our goal with the first NASA App was to deliver current mission information, images, videos and news updates in the best possible way for the iPhone and iPod touch," said Jerry Colen, NASA App project manager at NASA's Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif. "Now we've enhanced and expanded the application to include even more content and really take advantage of the iPad's larger screen."
