Wired reports that NASA is now placing source code on GitHub (yesterday we reported that the National Geosaptial-Intelligence Agency [NGA] had place code on GitHub). NASA has already made the code publicly available.According to the Wired report:
NASA will release a master list of software projects it has cooked up over the years. This is more than just stuff than runs on a personal computer. Think robots and cryogenic systems and climate simulators. There’s even code for running rocket guidance systems.
Even code from the Apollo 11 system is offered as open source. Care to go to the Moon?
