NASA Launches Agency-wide Open Source Initiative

NASA has launched a new website, located at, aimed at centralizing the agency’s open source software efforts and creating a collaborative environment to discuss issues related to its use.

The site, currently in “alpha” phase, will be developed over a three-stage process and include a directory of development projects, points of contacts, online discussion forums and help “guide internal and external groups in open development, release, and contribution.”

“Ultimately, our goal is to create a highly visible community hub that will imbue open concepts into the formulation stages of new hardware and software projects, and help existing projects transition to open modes of development and operation,” writes William Eshagh on the open.NASA blog.
