As announced by NASA on Thursday, the NASA App for Android is now available for free at the Android Market which is in time for the final launch of Space Shuttle, the STS-135 mission.

“The NASA App for iPhone and iPad has been a phenomenal success with over five million downloads so far,” NASA App project manager Jerry Colen was quoted on the report.

“Making a version of the NASA App for Android has been the number one request from users.” Colen added, noting that it has a huge collection of NASA news including images, videos, among others.

Meanwhile, NASA also announced that fueling of Space Shuttle Atlantis started at 2:01 a.m. (EDT) and just in time, with more than 500,000 gallons of liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen to be used.

As of this writing, NASA said the weather suggests a 30 percent chance in favor for the Space Shuttle final launch after two lightning strikes hit near the Launch Pad 39A earlier.
