CIOL NASA gives a sweet treat to all the tech fanatics

The National Space Research Organization is sharing a slew of software updates for tech devotees, enabling them to code like astronomers or scientists. How cool is that?


The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has officially released its 2017-2018 software catalogue which includes exciting apps and code libraries used for data and image processing, design and integration, system testing, propulsion, aeronautics, space exploration. This enormous amount of data has been made available to the public, free of charge.

Both hard copy and offline formats are available.


NASA's Associate Administrator for Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) Steve Jurczyk said, "The software catalogue is our way of supporting the innovation economy by granting access to tools used by today's top aerospace professionals to entrepreneurs, small businesses, academia and industry. Access to these software codes has the potential to generate tangible benefits that create American jobs, earn revenue and save lives."

The official release also includes Global Reference Atmospheric Models for Earth, Mars, Venus and Neptune and Titan, which gives you access to know the pressure and temperature conditions of anywhere. The Worldview Satellite Imagery Browsing and Downloading Tool is also available that allows you to quickly filter all the data coming from NASA satellites and access "images soon after they are actually taken by the satellites."

As it is coming from NASA, you might think language will be little difficult for a not-a-NASA-person. However, NASA assures that the descriptions are comprehensible. "While access restrictions apply to some codes, NASA has automated and updated its software release process over the last two years to ensure that it is as quick, easy and straightforward as possible," said NASA.


NASA is also providing codes for cutting-edge drone and noise-free aircraft technology, this one calls for a celebration for all the drone lovers. The codes include everything from "advanced camera imaging using the Lossless Hyper-/Multi-Spectral Data Compression Software, Video Image Stabilization and Registration, and JPL's Stereo Vision Software Suite, to the delivery protocols."

Moreover, NASA is also giving an impressive spacewalk experience to everyone with a Mac or PC.
