Not a live tile?

This is a perfect Win8 app to be a live tile, which unfortunately it is not.

Is a nice app, but it can do a little more.

Live tiles can be an important role in this app which is not implemented. I would like to see pictures of mars, titles of interesting articles, updates, etc.

Great info and fun... needs easier scrolling

Nice app, but needs easy way to browse updates to missions without needing to press the back button each time, clicking mission updates, then next update. Bit tedious.

Imagery is excellent! Would be nice if links weren't just text, and you could click on them...
