Brilliant and inspiring

I can't praise this app too highly: unlike many science apps it is cleanly designed, not turned into an edutainment science light experience for children, but still beautiful and accessible for a wide audience. Outstanding!

Engineering & artistic heaven

How I appreciate this! 45 minutes of shuttle launch HD video, over 30 clips from various cameras around the launch perimeter, narrated by NAS aerospace engineers. I learned so much, and the imagery is beyond belief, much of it >400 frames/sec. My absolute favorite "app" although I actually think of it as my favorite "movie" of all time.

Wonderful video

I would give the app 5 stars if AirPlay worked. I want to watch it again on my tv through AppleTV. Running 6.1.3, the most up to date software at the time of the writing and sound for AirPlay works but not the video.
Incredible footage, well done video. Looking forward to watching again and again and learning so much more about this incredible wonder!
