NASA’s Astro Apps
In the universe of NASA apps, the agency has two “Astro Apps” that allow users to learn about these programs, missions, their astronauts and to know what it’s like to work on space shuttle and space station crews. Both apps are available on the iOS platform.
NASA describes the Astro App: Space Station Crew
Did you know humans live and work off-planet 24/7? Look up at night and you might see them streak across the sky onboard the International Space Station orbiting more than 220 miles overhead every 90 minutes at 17,500 mph. Space travelers representing 15 partner countries learn how to survive and thrive in the hostile environment of zero-g on this unique vehicle, assembled by humans bolt by bolt, module by module IN SPACE. You can sort crew members by name and mission. The “Suit Me Up” feature allows you to become a Space Station crew member. Share your space profile with friends and family.
And NASA describes the Astro App Space Shuttle Crew
NASA’s Space Shuttle program ends after 30 years. Celebrate this accomplishment with us. Get to know all the space travelers who flew on this unique vehicle. You can sort by name and mission. The “Suit Me Up” feature allows you to become a Space Shuttle astronaut yourself. Share it with your friends and family.
