Want to be like a villain in a James Bond movie with satellites under your fingertips? There’s a new NASA iPad App for that!

NASA iPad App, has satellite tracking

The new NASA iPad app [itunes link] has news, launch schedules, latest satellite photos, and more, for the price of zero space dollars.

The app opens to an illustration of the solar system with the International Space Station (ISS). You can click on individual planets to get information.The NASA iPad app solar system chart is not to scale (if drawn to scale, the planets would be tiny compared to the sun).

NASA Videos and Photos

The NASA APod (second icon on the lower left) shows you a beautiful gallery of stars. Click on the photo once to show extra-long informative captions (or to hide them). OMG there’s even a double rainbow hidden in one of the photos:
