enable users to explore the Earth and its surrounding Universe from the

stories about the advanced based research NASA is currently conducting
using their fleet of research spacecraft using visualisation and
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.
