Events can be bookmarked and shared on social networks from directly within the app. The update also provides improved search capabilities, an enhanced sky view and redesigned control buttons for smoother operation.

I have no reason to celebrate Yuri Gagarin’s accomplishments. He didn’t make space travel possible. He didn’t make the moon landing possible. He merely just beat Alan Shepard to the punch by a few days because of NASA’s insistence at sending up a monkey first.
