Spitzer Space Telescope is a Windows Phone app dedicated to the final mission in NASA's Great Observatories Program. The program is a collection of four space-based observatories that explore the depths of space based on a variety of light pattern with the Spitzer telescope designed to detect infrared light.
The Spitzer Space Telescope Windows Phone app is a collection of these images plus a little background on what the telescope captures. It is an interesting collection and the app normally runs $.99 in the Windows Phone Store. However, being the myAppFree Deal of the Week for the next twenty-four hours you can pick the Windows Phone app up for free.
Spitzer Space Telescope is from the developers of another space exploration app featured as a myAppFree deal, the Hubble Space Telescope app. Spitzer shares a similar layout as we saw with the Hubble app with pages detailing the Spitzer telescopes information, a mosaic of the images captured by Spitzer and several pages of individual images along with details on the who, what, when and where of the image.
Key features of the app include:
- 100 coolest images taken by Spitzer Space Telescope
- Detailed information includes image descriptions, distance from Earth, type of object and more
- Wikipedia links for more details for each image
- Live Tile support
Images are touch zoomable and you will have to take a screenshot so save the image should the need arise (some could make for cool looking wallpapers).
The app normally runs $.99 but through the myAppFree campaign, for the next twenty-four hours you can pick the Spitzer Space Telescope app up for free.
