NASA Open Source Software

I think this is significant. NASA is open sourcing many of its projects. The motivations for NASA to distribute software codes Open Source are:

  • to increase NASA software quality via community peer review
  • to accelerate software development via community contributions
  • to maximize the awareness and impact of NASA research
  • to increase dissemination of NASA software in support of NASA’s education mission
