NASA App HD: Cool Space Stuff for iPad

NASA announced Thursday the release of NASA App HD, a new app that brings all kinds of cool NASA content to your iPad.

“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,” Jerry Colen, NASA App project manager, said in a statement. “Now we’ve enhanced and expanded the application to include even more content and really take advantage of the iPad’s larger screen.”

The app features streaming video from NASA Television, and an interactive map with links to all of the space agency’s field centers. Users can also find feature stores, launch schedules, scrolling alerts, information about the solar system, and more.

The app is free, and it’s available now on the App Store.
