Walk on the Moon

20 Jul

On July 20th, 1969 American astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the moon.  In honor of this historic day I have included an audio transmission of the event and a list of iPad NASA apps.


The NASA App HD invites you to discover a wealth of NASA information right on your iPad. The application collects, customizes and delivers an extensive selection of dynamically updated mission information, images, videos and Twitter feeds from various online NASA sources in a convenient mobile package.

Space Images:

Discover stunning images and videos of space, stars and planets — including Earth and the sun! — at your fingertips with the Space Images app from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a leader in robotic exploration of the solar system.

NASA Television:

The NASA Television App brings live and on-demand TV programming to your iPhone or iPod Touch. Watch the latest NASA events unfold in real-time or select from a list of recently uploaded videos. Plan your viewing up to a week in advance with the NASA TV schedule, and check out a list of NASA-related programming on other networks.

AstroApp: Space Shuttle Crew:

NASA’s Space Shuttle program ends after 30 years. Celebrate this accomplishment with us. Get to know all the space travelers who flew on this unique vehicle. You can sort by name and mission. The “Suit Me Up” feature allows you to become a Space Shuttle astronaut yourself. Share it with your friends and family.

3D Sun:

A major solar flare erupts on the sun. Before long, your phone chirps in your pocket to let you know! Pulling out your phone, you see a 3D view of the sun — a digital reconstruction of satellite images freshly downloaded from NASA’s “STEREO” satellites, orbiting millions of miles away.

    I use NASA’s site for many different resources. It always amazes me how much content they make available and the overall quality of the material. You have posted some great links. They also post some lesson plans for video and multimedia resources provided on the site.

    NASA is great with education. They have a program set up to do video conferences with classrooms. We have used them in our elementary schools, and the kids loved it. They’ve got great resources.

    It was an epic event that Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon as the world waited in anticipation. Buzz Aldrin, Neil’s right wing man, did a great job taking photos of the moon, reporting the experiences, and gave the next generation hope for space explorations. It’s hard to believe that its been 42 years since US Astronauts have landed on the moon and set foot on it.
