A Breathtaking Journey to the Solar System, Through the iPadS

From the same developers who made the periodic table sexy, comes something which doesn't need added gloss to lure people in (though it helps): the solar system.

New Scientist's cosmology consultant Marcus Chown arranged the wording in Touchpress' app, so you know it's going to be factually on the mark. But why bother poring over the facts, when you can ogle 150 pages of stunning 3D views, videos and interactive scenes of the planets instead?

It's going to be out on the iPhone 4 later, but for now get it on the iPad for $14. I'm especially excited about the never-heard-before Björk song that launches the app. [iTunes via New Scientist]
