Version 1.1 of the new NASA application has hit the iPhone App Store and it gives iPhone users the chance to keep up to date with the latest missions being undertaken by the space agency.
Users of the app will be able to access information relating to countdowns for upcoming missions as well as detailed data for current missions. The app will also allow the user to identify the location of near-Earth orbiters.
In addition, the app integrates a few social networking and media capabilities, including the ability to view NASA video streams and keep up-to-date with its Twitter feed.
At this time it seems that only iPhone or iPod Touch owners will be able to get their hands on the NASA application, as sources at the organisation said that there were no plans to port the application to other smartphone platforms.
This means that Google Android, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile users could have a long wait on their hands.
The NASA application is now available to download for free from the App Store.
