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!

Simply incredible footage!!

Too bad it does have sound of the actual engine burns at launch. Airplay and Bluetooth both work fine on the New iPad on iOS 5.1.1. The app, however, is not multitasking compliant. If you recall it from the background it goes back to he main menu. Incredible slow motion video. More please! :-)

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!
