The first major update of the American Museum of Natural History: Cosmic Discoveries iPhone App was released on February 15 as part of an ongoing effort to create a gallery of the universe that fits in the palm of your hand. The updated app features five new chapters, which combine fascinating images with in-depth descriptions of astrophysical phenomena, the people who discovered them, and the technology that makes it all possible.

The new stories describe the extremes of star formation (“Massive Stars” and “Brown Dwarfs”), galaxies like our own Milky Way (“Spiral Galaxies”) and the dense clumps of stars that swarm around them (“Globular Clusters”), as well as astronomical phenomena caused by runaway thermonuclear explosions (innocuously called “Novae”).

Download the app today in order to automatically be notified about new updates via the App Store. More updates will be released every few months.
