Blast off into space with these appsJust because World Space Week is wrapping up, doesn't mean you can't keep exploring the cosmos. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on a handful of new space science and technology apps.
For those obsessed with outer space, there's no better place to start exploring than a handful of apps designed by NASA itself. The free iOS app SpacePlace Prime is a catchall for all of NASA news, video and images. It's updated daily and is great for all ages. NASA's free iOS and Android app, Space Images, is a must download. Browse thousands of stunning photographs and videos of planets and galaxies. Save your favorites to your camera roll and share them with friends directly through the app. And finally, if you're specifically interested in NASA's mission to Mars, download the Be a Martian app, another free one for both types of phones. Stay up to date on the latest mission, view updated photos and even ask experts questions about the red planet. In San Francisco, I'm Caris DuBois, CNet.com for CBS News.
