Stargazing enthusiasts had to turn to astronomy books and home telescopes to observe planets and stars and determine constellations. Today, they have mobile apps for that. Stellarium Mobile Plus, one of the most versatile planetarium apps, utilises augmented reality combined with the camera of the mobile device to show people exactly where the stars are. Users can easily point their device camera towards the sky and locate the position of constellations and stars. This app can be used to discover more educational information about a specific celestial body or to plan ahead for their stargazing activities.

Stellarium Mobile Plus is a planetarium application that highlights what people see when they look up at the stars. The app allows users to determine satellites, comets, planets, stars, constellations, and other deep sky objects in real-time. A well-structured and minimalist user interface makes it easy to navigate and quick to learn for both kids and adults who love to discover the night sky.

Says Guillaume Chereau, Co-Founder of Noctua Software Ltd.: “We are actively working on porting our astronomical app on a wide array of devices such as IoT devices, web browsers, and all mobile devices. A French version and other language adaptations will also be available soon.”

The company takes pride in its main product to be one of the leading Android and iOS planetarium simulation apps on the market. Recently, they released stellarium-web.org – a web browser version of the Stellarium App. Stellarium Mobile Plus is now available for Android and iOS. Interested users can download it today on Google Play Store and in Apple Store.

3-2-1-Cookoff! Astronauts to bake cookies with new test oven

Apr 2, 2020

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Forget reheated, freeze-dried space grub. Astronauts are about to get a new test oven for baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch. The next delivery to the International Space Station — scheduled for liftoff this weekend — includes the Zero G Oven. Chocolate chip cookie dough is already up there, waiting to pop into this small electric oven designed for zero gravity. Sample cookies baked just this week are also launching from Virginia on Northrop Grumman's Cygnus capsule, for the six station astronauts. The experiment explores the possibility of making freshly baked items for space travelers. With...
