NASA HD iPad App Clears the Tower

NASA's new iPad app lets space-fans catch up with all the latest happenings, track satellites, watch NASA TV, leaf through its archive of fantastic imagery and much, much more.

It's been possible to stream NASA TV on Apple devices for quite some time, but now there's more to play with between broadcasts. The app lets iPad users browse NASA's image database, read up on current missions and future launch data, or track satellites—with a specific section telling you when to open the window and look out for the International Space Station passing overhead.

NASA's App HD for iPad is out now on iTunes, for free. [NASA via SlashGear]
