The first social network for space is now at your fingertips! Follow the astronauts as they work, play and explore in zero gravity.

Share their photos and videos with your friends + be notified when new people blast off!

50 years ago, a few minutes of blurry TV footage captivated the world as the astronauts turned their cameras back on the Earth for the first time.

Today, the people in space share 10x as much stunning content, every single day.

People In Space brings it all together on your phone in one enthralling and addictive package.



- See photos and videos as they’re shared by the people working, playing and living in space

- Be notified when number of people in space changes

- Keep tabs on who’s floating, what they’re like, and who’s been in space the longest

- Tweet your favorite photos, follow your favorite astronauts

- Minimal, swipeable, addictive


howmanypeopleareinspacerightnow.com is an OG of the social web and the Internet’s #1 source for keeping tabs on who is in Low Earth Orbit.

Soon, the number of people sharing their smile inducing experiences from space will leap from a few, to hundreds. And, we’re just getting started.

“I look forward to one day soon when our Virgin Galactic astronauts names are up on howmanypeopleareinspacerightnow.com - including my children Holly and Sam of course.”

- Richard Branson, Virgin Galactic

For an app with simple function and easy to find information, please update timely. When people come back down, they shouldn't be shown for several days in space after that, same goes with people that are up there and aren't being shown. Great app, please update more reliably to get the fifth star from me

Great App, One Key Flaw

This app is great. It’s clean, it’s simple, it does exactly the job that it sets out to do. EXCEPT notify you when the number changes. I have had this app for over a year now and not once has it notified me. I usually have the opposite complaint but I want to know when it changes!

Great app but no notifications

I love the app but the number has changed twice since I downloaded it and I never get the notifications. I have them turned on within the app and notifications allowed in my phone settings.
