    Excellent app... once you've waited about 20seconds for 11 news sources to load (which is really ok) you have access to loads of space news that otherwise would be painstaking to look for or access (i have accessed paying news sources for free a couple of times through this app).

    Pretty good I installed this app because of Rosetta and NASA heavy lift launcher, the first flight of which should be this autumn.
