After sending the first tweet from space, NASA is releasing a new free iPhone app called 3D Sun, and makes possible for each and every one of us to hold the entire sun in our hands.
Using this app, you can spin the sun, zoom in on sunspots, inspect coronal holes–and when a solar flare erupts, your phone plays a little jingle to alert you! And this is just the beginning. Soon-to-be released 3D Sun 2.0 will offer higher-resolution images and multiple extreme ultraviolet wavelengths (preview). These additions will reveal even more solar activity than before.
