Are you a big fan of all things SPACE – such as space science, space research and space exploration? Did you see our previous post on NASA mobile apps, and still want more? If so, here’s a list of additional apps from the European Space Agency (ESA) that should be just what you’re looking for. Included in these apps are descriptions of different satellite missions, access to the latest ESA images and videos, the ability to track satellite locations in real-time, details on the latest ESA projects and achievements, and so much more.
ESA – European Space Agency. “ESA is Europe’s gateway to space. Join us on our exciting journeys and see how space benefits all of us on Earth. The ESA App delivers a wealth of information on ESA missions, videos, images and news updates, at your fingertips. ESA Live allows you to watch live events and programmes such as launches, docking, press conferences, tweetups and other major events.” – iPhone/iPad/iPod
ESA wis. “Where Is the Satellite – WIS – tracks in real-time the position of the selected satellite and predicts when and where the satellite will be visible from the user’s actual position. The application includes all European Space Agency Earth Observation satellites plus others bright enough to be seen with the naked eye such as the International Space Station and the Hubble Space Telescope.” – iPhone/iPad/iPod
ESA cryostat + ESA cryostat HD. “CryoSat is ESA’s (European Space Agency) first ice mission. The satellite has sophisticated technologies to determine variations in the thickness of polar sea ice to monitor changes in the vast ice sheets that overlie Greenland and Antarctica. This application is a gateway to knowing what the mission is about, how it works and what the elements of the space and ground segment that makes this mission unique are.” – iPhone/iPad/iPod (HD iPad only)
ESA Bulletin. “ESA Bulletin at your fingertips. The ESA Bulletin is the flagship magazine of the European Space Agency, published four times a year to report on ESA’s activities and achievements. In addition to a wide range of articles, every issue provides an overview of the status of ESA’s major space projects. It has been inspiring and informing the space-interested public since it was first issued in 1975.” – iPhone/iPad/iPod
So go ahead and add more ‘space science’ to your mobile device. We have.
