Created by NASA's Ames Research Center, it provides news, information and access to more than 150,000 images. The Earth-orbiting satellite trackers and launch countdown clocks are fun and educational. Available for Android, iPad and iPhone.

re: 10 Helpful Apps From Uncle Sam
There are definitely some must-have apps in this listing. Every parent should have the FBI's Child ID app. And having lived through Hurricane Sandy this year, the FEMA app looks invaluable. The other one I think I will download onto my iPhone is the Red Cross's First Aid app, which could be a life saver.
