This could be the one app that inspires us to continue space research and allow our species to survive. Your work makes humanity proud (not the real Neil but might as well be).
This program needs more appreciation and exponation. It's simply amazing that you find the time and energy to do this (coming from a fellow programmer)

That's simply amazing!!!
