A neat, way of navigating NASA’s content, and to check out when the ISS will be hurtling overhead.

NASA App HD Review

by on June 16, 2011

America’s National Aeronautics and Space Administration generates vast amounts of data: images, videos, TV streams, RSS and Twitter feeds, news stories, press releases, research results, orbital information, flight schedules… you name it. So the HD version of its app is an elegant means of aggregating a lot of that data in a neat, easy-to-use viewer/browser/player.

However, the app isn’t really much more than links to the various sections of NASA’s websites; turn off your WiFi or network connection and it’s useless. And because the app draws so much of its information from a multitude of sources, there are a few oddities. There are links that can’t be followed, and Flash and Windows Media content remains steadfastly unplayable.

But we can overlook this given that the app is so nicely put together, free, and gives you easy access to a bewildering wealth of space science. Sure you can access the bulk of the content directly from the web, but not in such an easy and elegant way.
