{Don't miss our nomination period to nominate your most attractive physicists}

Hey, did you see NOVA's "Hunting the Elements" last week? If you enjoyed that, then there's an iPad app for you to continue with your exploration of the various elements.

The Elements iPad AppThe free app, available now on the App Store, takes the periodic table off the wall and puts it into users’ hands, bringing life to the world’s elements in colorful and dynamic ways.

NOVA Elements, featuring tech guru David Pogue, allows users to explore an interactive periodic table, build elements from their particles, construct 3D rotating molecules, and watch the two-hour NOVA program, “Hunting the Elements,” premiering tonight at 9PM/8c on PBS (check local listings).

The NOVA Elements App allows users to:

  • Learn key facts about each element: its discovery, appearance, real-world application and more.
  • Play in an atomic sandbox to create any or all of the 118 elements by adding the correct number of protons, neutrons and electrons.
  • Combine the elements you’ve built into 3D rotatable molecules found in everyday objects, like a banana or a watch, in the “My Essential Elements” game.
  • Jump to related segments in NOVA’s “Hunting the Elements” program with the tappable periodic table.
  • Share your exploration and discoveries with tweets.
  • Watch the complete two-hour NOVA program, “Hunting the Elements.” Streaming is only available in the U.S. and its territories.

The NOVA Elements App is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at here.
So here's another app to add to something that might be useful and relevant to physics.
