Press a button for an exciting quiz!

It’s strange how you wait years for an exciting free astronomy app for your iPod/Pad/Phone from Armagh Planetarium and then two of them show up in a fortnight. Following the release of our successful Pocket Sky app, Discover Science and Engineering (DSE) has just launched Space Brains, a free app available for the iPod Touch or iPhone.  This engrossing game was developed with the help of Armagh Planetarium and CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory. Space Brains is the ultimate free app for anyone who wants to find out just what they really know about space, planets, stars…the whole Universe basically. With over a thousand questions of variable difficulty, players of different levels from beginners to Stephen Hawking will be amazed at how much they already know (or how much they have still to learn) about the galaxy and space exploration.


Examples of the games on Space Brains. Go on, beat the high score!

This app is great fun and highly addictive. Players are quizzed on years, dates for space exploration and a wide range of space trivia questions.   Each category features different mini-games including Trivia, What Year, True or False, Hangman and many more.

The Space Brain app is available for download for free on the iTunes store. Go there by clicking on this link. Install it and get ready to say goodbye to your free time!
