On January 4, 2012 NASA launched http://code.nasa.gov to further expand the agency’s open source software development. Now all the citizens can participate in NASA’s existing projects and well as discuss the progress of the projects on forums. This will give public an opportunity to help pioneer the future of space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research. Now the current projects include:
SunPy – project is an effort to create an open-source software library for solar physics using the Python programming language. More information at http://www.sunpy.org.
Save ( Synchronization, Archival, Validation, and IP Exchange) – lightweight framework for creating high availability systems
Mutil (Multi-Threaded Multi-Node Utilities) – set of standard utilities that employ multiple types of parallelism and other optimizations to achieve maximum performance on modern file systems.
