Posted March 12, 2014

The popular NASA Visualization Explorer app, first launched for the iPad in July 2011, is now available for the iPhone and all Apple iOS devices.

The app, which features the data visualization work of NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio, Earth Observatory, Science @NASA and others, publishes two stories per week about the full range of NASA’s astrophysics, planetary, heliophysics and Earth science missions.

A new universal version of the app is now available for download in the iTunes app store. Since its original launch and through multiple previous updates to the iPad version, NASA Visualization Explorer has recorded about 1 million unique downloads.

The app’s design has been modified to optimize it for viewing on the iPhone and the iPod Touch, as long as they are running iOS 5.1 or newer.

The app’s archive of 274 stories – covering NASA scientists’ studies of the sun, planets, Earth’s climate change and deep space – will be immediately available in the new version. The app’s editorial team will continue to publish a new story every Tuesday and Thursday.

“I am very excited at the opportunity to turn millions of iPhone and iPod Touch users worldwide into fans of the app,” said Helen-Nicole Kostis, the app’s project manager. “We worked hard to maintain the quality of interaction within the visual story on smaller screens. With this release we welcome new users to enjoy the experience and to follow the fascinating world of NASA science and research through our stories and data visualization work.”
