Ratings and Reviews

Does not work


Only returns “No results” for me. No images exist in the app.

Astronomy is Awesome!


It is truly the most facinating of the sciences. I own a large telescope and never get tired of the hobby. To understand the chaotic universe and how the ongoing natural processes have worked over billions of years is a wonderous thing. This understanding brings a satisfaction that no religous dogma could ever deliver. These photos are amazing and are a pleasure to view. I recommend this app to all those that want to learn about the Universe and revel in it's beauty.

Stunning images!


This app is amazing! You get to see all of the latest images sent by NASA's JPL spacecraft, in addition the easy to use UI allows you to view images based on top rated, latest, and by category. Each image also has a nice caption to go with it so you have an understanding of what your looking at. Great job JPL!
