Space Flight Photos

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Shuttles are soon to be only museum pieces, but you can still relive the thrill of space flight!
This app shows about 900 unique images of American space flight from the NASA archives, divided into 10 groups covering the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, Shuttle, and Space Station programs. (Some images appear in more than one group.)
Captions, all from NASA, are extensive: almost 100,000 words in all.
An internet connection is required.
All of these images were taken from NASA's "Great Images in NASA" website. However, this app presents the images in a more logical order, integrates the extensive captions to show alongside the images, and allows easy browsing and slideshows.
You can view images in a grid, or extra-large (almost full-screen), or see a slideshow. You can also order a print.
