The APP Company announced the release of the Buzz Aldrin Portal To Science and Space Exploration iPhone App. Available for $1.99 on the Apple iTunes and App Stores, this iPhone app launched by the pioneering Apollo astronaut and moonwalker Buzz Aldrin takes the user on a journey through the world of everything that is Space Exploration.
This legendary space hero revealed that he was moved to design this app by the rush of interest in global space activity, particularly among young people. "It is these young people who are the generation that will take mankind's next steps in exploring the frontiers of space. This app is an amazing tool to both educate and entertain," said Buzz Aldrin. "I have gathered a network of scientists, physicists, astronomers, astronauts and many others of the world's great minds to help me keep this app timely and relevant with lots of original daily content."
