Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Find a Mars-bound spaceship, glimpse a near-Earth asteroid, watch a lunar elevator take off from the Moon, and more in this new augmented reality (AR) app created as a companion to the exhibition Beyond Planet Earth: The Future of Space Exploration at the American Museum of Natural History.
Download the app before you visit the exhibition, then look for 11 AR icons, including a Moon base, NASA's Curiosity Rover, and more, sprinkled throughout the show. Use the camera on your iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad 2 to activate the icon and unlock animations. Then, share images by email or post to Facebook and Twitter. A link to a special site will let you collect additional icons, find out the science behind space technologies, and share photos with friends.
Using the app at home?

What's New in Version 1.05
Minor bug fixes.
Beyond Planet Earth
This is a interesting app that allows users to interact and learn about different parts of space and space exploration. The only thing is that the app is useless when you are not in the museum using the exhibit as a source.
This app does nothing to enhance the exhibit. It just gives you more to read. And it's the same content--there is no added bonus at all. And the app is very small. Collect eleven badges and there is nothing more you can do.
This won't excite a fifth grader
It's more of a gimmick than informative but it was really fun and cool to use. It brought a new dimension to the exhibit.
