Come on a voyage of discovery to the ringed planet of Saturn with Cassini HD for iPad and iPhone. Navigate a collection of more than 960 spectacular images returned to Earth by NASA's Cassini orbiter while learning about this alien environment in our celestial backyard. The Cassini HD photo collection was carefully selected from thousands of images available courtesy NASA/JPL-Caltech.
Browsing this collection takes you on a journey from Saturn itself, beyond its stunning rings, and past more than 20 of its moons. Additional information about each image can be revealed with just a tap. With multiple ways to navigate, Cassini HD becomes an immersive experience guided by your own curiosity: an alphabetical menu can take you to any point of interest, while a unique navigation map and thumbnails view allow you to scroll easily through this vast collection.
Save images to your favorites to access them quickly, or save them to your photo roll to use as wallpaper or enjoy anytime. Integration with social media adds to the fun as you share your discoveries with family and friends.
