Cosmos

NASA Cosmos Gallery

 

I’ve been watching one of the best shows on TV and following a “second screen” on Twitter, where @nasagoddard and @nasagoddardpix have been live tweeting NASA images during Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey (Sundays 9:00 pm EDT/PST on Fox and Nat Geo Channel on Mondays at 10:00 pm). The show is spectacular. The images are jaw dropping magnificent.

I’m fascinated and captivated and decided to put the tweeted images together in a Windows 8.1 app where I could enjoy the images and the descriptions that NASA Goddard provides on Flickr. The result was NASA Cosmos Gallery, now available in the Windows Store. (http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/nasa-cosmos-gallery/a97e5e15-7294-412b-a9f4-fb776b0cc234)

The main screen is a scrollable gallery with a large thumbnail and description. Scroll with touch or your mouse and it will snap into place and display the next item.

Tap or click the large thumbnail to view the large, expanded image:

Please download and see these amazing images! Let me know on Twitter @barbbowman if you like the app or rate it in the Windows Store.
