ISSLive!: ISS Mission Control in Your Pocket

International Space Station Live! or ISSLive! includes a website and mobile applications that tie ISS streaming systems data and operational timelines into one “Rich Internet Application (RIA)” experience. The application offers data on real time parameters such as station position, internal environment, altitude, payload rack science activities and other interesting data and crew activities. ISSLive! ties this data into an interactive application which includes the latest social media feeds.

ISSLive! contains a scrollable timeline, with a ‘public-friendly’ view of crew and payload activities. It uses some of the latest interactive web content technologies, including 3D interactive virtual views of the MCC and ISS. ISSLive! is a “one-stop shop” for ISS data, letting users in on the fascinating activities that happen daily onboard the ISS.

Working with the NASA Education Office, ISSLive! content serves as the basis for development of interactive lessons in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields. ISSLive! is also a resource for the space enthusiast, the educator, and the life-long learner to participate in the mission of the ISS.

Awesome concept, but doesn't work

I was really excited when I found this app; seriously how amazing would it be to get near realtime data from the ISS. Unfortunately the live feeds don't work. The non-live features are interesting, but you can work your way through that in 10 minutes.

I hope NASA fixes the app... The space program is so important and they need to keep the public engaged.

NASA I came up with one more idea

NASA you guys basically built the I.S.S. well you guys should add astronauts and we could customize our own and we can explore the inside and outside of the I.S.S. in simulation mode and in simulation mode we could use every last control on the I.S.S. and there should be missions where we fix the I.S.S. And in simulation mode we could have our own I.S.S. And we can customize the inside and outside of it and we can add space equipment to it and fuselages that we customized to it. A lot of ideas right? I know I'm very creative! But this app is awesome! It's like I'm stocking the people aboard the I.S.S. Not really. The idea I came up with to add to my ideas for the next update: can we talk to the crew members? When they're awake? I'll be asleep if the crew is awake but I could talk to them on the weekends I stay up late or all night on the weekends and the weekends would be a good time to talk to the crew but if they are working I won't bug the crew. Still an awesome app!

Brilliant app. Problems with font size

All in all an amazing app with a huge amount of real time data about the iss. Only problem is the font size for many of the information overlays is ridiculously small and illegible. If it weren't for that it would be 5 stars
