NASA app gives information on International Space Station
Want to know more about the International Space Station (ISS)? There’s an app for that! 

A new NASA app provides information on ISS experiments, facilities and research results through video, photos, interactive media and in-depth descriptions.

The Space Station Research Explorer app has an Experiments section which contains six categories and their subcategories.

Experiments are depicted as dots within the category system and the stems connecting the dots to the system depict the length of time the experiment spent on orbit.

Users can drill down to see specific experiments within the categories and subcategories or search for a specific experiment or subject using the search option.

Experiment descriptions consist of links, images, and publications if available. The Experiments section can be further narrowed by selecting a specific expedition and sponsor.

The Facilities section of the app provides an interior view of three of the station modules; Columbus, Kibo, and Destiny. The Benefits section provides information on Human Health, Earth Benefits and Global education. Selecting a section allows the benefits to be investigated further.
