3 Apps in This BundleSee All
The new STEM bundle from Touch Press Media will help you discover the amazing science behind the astronomy of our Solar System, the inventions that have shaped human civilizations and the mathematics underlying our knowledge of universe!
Bestselling author Marcus Chown leads us through the incredible diversity of planets, moons, asteroids, comets and spacecraft that surround the Sun in our cosmic backyard. Illuminating his insightful and surprising text are a wealth of beautiful 3D objects, movies, images, animations, and diagrams, all fully interactive, richly detailed and accurately based on real scientific data.
Set the heavens in motion in an interactive model that allows you to control the orbits of the moons and planets, observing them from any viewpoint with breath-taking surface detail. View the latest imagery returned by both manned and robot spacecraft, beautifully presented on the iPad screen. Then double-tap any astronomical object to jump directly to its chapter in the interactive book.

Journeys of Inventions
With Journeys of Invention you can pick up and play with some of the most extraordinary objects in the history of science and technology.
Study, rotate and even operate some of the most revolutionary scientific inventions of all time. Step inside the Apollo 10 Command Module, examine a flea with Robert Hooke’s 17th-century microscope, explore the Large Hadron Collider, or even encode a secret message with a World War II Enigma Machine and share it with your friends to decipher. The app features original and insightful history specially written by Science Museum curators with a rich collection of historic photographs, rarely seen contemporary artworks, archive film footage and video.
This spectacular app is presented in a spell-binding interactive network of inventions, making it effortless to journey back and forth through time. Learn about the darker side of science on the ‘Dangerous’ journey. Choose ‘Horizons’ for dramatic tales of exploration. For a different take on the history of science and technology, try ‘Atoms and Rays’ or ‘The Secret of Life’.
Created by experts from the Science Museum in partnership with Touch Press (the wizards behind acclaimed apps The Elements and Solar System), Journeys of Invention is a wonderful guide for anyone with an interest in science, technology and discovery.
‘Jammed with information about the workings and history of a long list of inventions...bring[s] complex ideas alive in an interactive and modern way.’
– The New York Times
“...a marvellous, marvellous app.”
– The Guardian
Numbers define the patterns of sunflowers; they bring pleasure through music; and they help us answer existential questions like ‘How many ways are there to lace my shoes?’ Interactive examples – from simple equations to a working Enigma machine – Incredible Numbers will convince you that maths is beautiful. Mathematicians know this already. The great solutions and proofs shine to them, but their underlying beauty has been hidden behind abstract algebra and complex equations, until now!
“A measure of Ian Stewart’s success is that he’s able to give a clear path through some very hairy mathematics.” – Times Higher Education Supplement
