Karna Desai Mrs. Fanso December 10, 2009 History Summary Space Shuttle Atlantis has blasted off, on its way to the international space station. The annual Leonid meteor shower peaked Tuesday. And NASA just found water on the moon. The past week in space news has been buzzier than, well, Buzz Aldrin. To keep up with it all, here are three smartphone applications aimed at your inner space geek. Because you never know when you might get the urge to track the progress of a spacecraft or just look at pretty pictures of stars and planets. NASA app for iPhone (free). The official app of the U.S. space agency. An orbit-tracker tracks the positions of the space station and other spacecraft orbiting Earth. The app also offers users access to NASA's vast image library and integrates its Twitter feeds. Astronomy Picture of the Day (iPhone, free). This simple app, developed from a popular wesite in partnership with NASA, is pretty much what it sounds like. Every day, a gorgeous new photo of a galaxy or other astronomical feature shows up on your phone's screen.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
