NASA has peered 13 billion years back into the history of the universe. You won't have to look as far to find our cutting-edge science. The NASA Visualization Explorer app has broadened its scope to include more awe-inspiring discoveries beamed back to Earth from the agency's entire fleet of satellites, spacecraft and space telescopes. Expect stories each week that cover all four fields of NASA's science research: planetary, heliophysics, astrophysics and Earth. You'll get new views of the planets and sun from satellites such as Cassini and Solar Dynamics Observatory; visualizations and animations of stars, distant galaxies and the cosmic stuff in between; and dramatic images taken by the legendary Hubble Space Telescope.
