Company / App Name: Pluto Safari
What does it do?
Pluto Safari is a Free App that puts NASA’s first Pluto mission in palm of your hands. It follows the New Horizons spacecraft on its historic mission to explore Pluto and the mysterious icy worlds at the edge of our solar system.
Why do we need it?
The New Horizons Pluto flyby is a rare chance for science to touch the general public. With a free app, we’re capturing a new generation at this teachable moment. We might inspire today’s young learners to become the next engineers.
Who is it for?
For everyone who is interested in space exploration, education, and science. The Voyager missions of the 1980s inspired engineers who went on to develop today’s mobile technologies.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
Beautiful 3D animations, a countdown timer that tracks when New Horizons will arrive – down to the second. Regular mission news updates. An in-app poll adds your voice to the planet definition debate.
