Cassini HD - Explore Saturn Via iPad

Our very own science/art Tumblrer stacythinx has been hard at work designing the Cassini HD iPad app, available Sept. 15 in the iTunes store (that’s tomorrow!). It will be free for the first day, by the way (I’ll add the link when it goes live).

I’ve had a chance to play with the app, and it’s really something special. NASA’s Cassini mission has provided us with what I think is the greatest catalogue of planetary images from our solar system. Saturn is such a visually striking celestial body, and exploring its moons and rings via photography gives us the ability to take a digital rocket tour with just a single click.

The Cassini HD app delivers more than just pretty pictures, of course. Tap an image to find out the science behind each photo, and any of them can be shared on Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, etc. right in the app. The philosophy behind this project, and Stacey’s Tumblr, is making knowledge beautiful. Mission accomplished!

I give it a rating of 10 rings out of 10. Go get it tomorrow!

Update: It’s Out!
