Goddard's open source site

NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., has
established a Web site for open-source projects that were
developed by center personnel for mission needs. By releasing such
code into open source, NASA hopes to speed development of the
software, as well as raise awareness of NASA research.

Projects hosted on the site include Ace, a parallel super-set of
the C programming language; the Earth Observing System Data
Gateway, an interface for searching geographically distributed
data; the OS Abstraction Layer, a software library for safely
running embedded software under a real time operating system; and
the Java Astrodynamics Toolkit, a library for planning spacecraft
