NASA has this week launched a new iPad application designed to enable users to explore the Earth and its surrounding Universe from the comfort of your iPad. The new NASA app provides and easy way to read stories about the advanced based research NASA is currently conducting using their fleet of research spacecraft using visualisation and spectacular imagery.
Michael Starobin, a senior producer at the Goddard Space Flight Center explains a little more about what the new NASA app has to offer.
“The app will explore stories of climate change, Earth’s dynamic systems, plant life on land and in the oceans–all of the small and large stories captured in data by NASA satellites and then visualized,” -“Science should be accessible to everyone, and visualization reveals the meaning and value of the often intangible, but essential, data delivered by NASA’s research efforts,”
The new NASA Visualisation Explorer iPad App is available to download for free from the iTunes App Store and is just under 5mb in size.
