NASA has never been shy to use social media and mobile technologies to better engage with the public and the U.S. space agency is now further appealing to young space lovers with the introduction of a new selfie app that can depict you in a spacesuit against a beautiful interstellar backdrop.
Aptly and simply dubbed 'NASA Selfies,' this app offers an array of 30 different background images all originally captured by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. Indeed the selfie app was actually created in order to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the venerable telescope.
While NASA's stated mission is to explore the wonders and utility of outer space, the agency is also clearly focused on maintaining engagement levels with people on our own planet, with this selfie app a fun and modern way to promote awareness about space exploration.
