The famous children's song "he's got the whole world, in his hands" has been taken to a whole new level, thanks to Apple's iPhone and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Now you have the entire universe at the flick of a finger.
The application "makes extensive use of built-in iPhone features and usability to offer compelling yet concise information in a clear and intuitive way. Receive and share dynamic NASA mission updates, out-of-this-world images, and intriguing video links. Follow the path and progress of space exploration in real time while tracking the global orbits of your favourite spacecraft, all in the palm on your hand."
We're holding off on the review in light of a new version somewhere on the horizon, which should bring the much-awaited NASA TV (live) right to the iPhone as well as a plethora of minor upgrades and new features. Until then, just photos:
