    [FONT=&quot]NASA today announced the launch of a new iPad app, called the NASA Visualization Explorer. The app enables users to easily interact with extraordinary images, video, and information about NASA’s latest Earth science research. Cutting-edged visualization has long been a feature of NASA Earth science and in particular the Scientific Visualization Studio (SVS) at Goddard Space Flight Centre. The iPad app enables NASA to present the stunning Earth science visualizations directly in people’s hands.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]The free app’s science features will include high-resolution movies and stills, and short, written stories. Most of the movies are real satellite data, visualized. Other features will include interviews with scientists, and imagery from supercomputer modelling efforts. The app also includes social networking interfaces, including links to Facebook and Twitter, for easy sharing of stories. The app editorial team plans to develop two new science features per week, running them on Tuesdays and Thursdays. These could include occasional stories about the Sun, the other planets in the Solar System, and exotic objects far out in the cosmos. [/FONT]
