Curiosity Visits Endeavour

This is just a teaser.  More on the NASA-JPL Social Media event in my next posts.

My current obsession is the Spacecraft 3D app, which is one of NASA-JPL’s mobile apps.  Most of the apps are educational. For example, instead of going to the website, NASA’s Earth Now can be in the palm of your hand.  And, instead of a flat view, the app allows users to view stunning visualizations of climate change data from NASA’s Earth satellites on a 3-D model of Earth. The model can be rotated and manipulated for an all-encompassing view of stats.

But, back to the Spacecraft 3D app…

This how the 3D app works:

  1. Download the app on your Android or Apple device.
  2. Download the target.
  3. Open your app and choose a spacecraft.
  4. Place the target where you want your spacecraft. Flat area works best.
  5. Wait for a bit until the spacecraft magically appears.
  6. Voila!
  7. To save the screen shot, click the settings button.

Your friends will be jealous! Ok, maybe not ‘jealous’, but they will think it’s super cool.
