NASA's Spacecraft 3D is an augmented reality (AR) application that lets you learn about and interact with a variety of spacecraft that are used to explore our solar system, study Earth, and observe the universe. Using a printed AR Target and the camera on your mobile device, you can get up close with these robotic explorers, see how they move, and learn about the engineering feats used to expand our knowledge and understanding of space. Spacecraft 3D will be updated over time to include more of the amazing spacecraft that act as our robotic eyes on the earth, the solar system and beyond!

Please look forward to interacting with even more iconic NASA missions in future updates!

This app requires a camera.

It doesn't update for ios8.4.1???

Every time I tap on update for the app, a message pops up saying it is not compatible with the device. I am able to open the app in earlier versions and use it with markers successfully.
This is a ipad2. There is a valid reason why I am not upgrading the iOS. It has to do with sync properties.
Your requirement say it should work with iOS 8 or later.
Please fix.

Fantastic! But...

Please add the ISS and a Space Shuttle (preferably Enterprise because it was so cool)!
