Whether you are fascinated with the planets, stars, and moon or just have an interest in NASA’s space mission to Pluto, the New Horizons app will keep you in the galactic loop. From Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, the app provides you with mission news, images from deep space, and even a tour of the spacecraft. It is not too late to be a part of this historic mission.
Browse through and share stories regarding this voyage from the New Horizons news center and Twitter feed. Look at pictures from the spacecraft and the mission as well as artist-created images. Check out videos and get information on the payload with details for each instrument. You can also look at the latest pictures on your Apple Watch.
The app is decent for getting news and images of the mission. It tends to act a bit quirky from time to time in regards to responsiveness. But overall, it provides some good information. You might also check out Pluto Safari, which we covered last month or the Eyes on Pluto desktop app for Windows and Mac.
The Pluto flyby took place early this morning, July 14, so grab the app and do not miss out on the continued mission coverage or the unique images from this voyage. New Horizons is available on the App Store for free. It is designed for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.
