If you are bored of normal world news, why not treat yourself to some news about what’s going on in outer space?

NASA’s news app is a must for the space cowboys and Astro-nuts out there who cannot get enough information about what is happening in the outer reaches of galaxies far, far away…
The app is jam-packed with news and information on NASA’s day-to-day activities and is very easy and intuitive to use.
You can keep track of current missions via a scrollbox, which also includes a running count of how long it’s been since the mission launched.
It is also possile to view NASA images (from NASA’s Image of the Day and from the Astronomy Picture of the Day) and watch NASA TV videos or follow the agency’s various Twitter feeds.
If you see any pics that take your fancy that you wish to share with your mates then you can save the images to your iPhone’s Camera Roll and share them with whoever you like.
For the hardcore NASA fan, perhaps the greatest feature is the inclusion of all of NASA’s launch info and countdown clocks.
No grown man can resist the lure of watching a spaceship blast into orbit, after all, and the fact that you can now do it on the bus or the train to work means that this app is more than worthy of inclusion in our favourite news applications for the iPhone.
