A Cool NASA App For A Sunday

NASA puts a lot of time and energy into bringing the fruits of its considerable scientific endeavors to the public. I love trolling through their websites looking for new and interesting photo-sets, videos or interactives of missions I did not even know were ongoing. For your viewing pleasure here is an interactive you might enjoy fooling around with

Cassi 3D Virtual Tour: The Cassini spacecraft has been orbiting Saturn for years now looping back and forth through the the ringed planet's system of fascinating moons. This interactive lets you explore the probe, its constantly shifting trajectory through the moon/ring system and the remarkable moons. Make sure you get into Mission Mode with the View from Cassini turned on. Very Cool.
