No one can deny the importance of NASA’s scientific contributions. Thanks to his research and discoveries we have been able to understand a little more where we are and what is around us, among many other achievements for the human race. For some years now, NASA has changed its policies, since being a publicly funded agency, much of what they do must also be available to all citizens.
Now all his images are in the public domain, and in August of last year they published more than 850 investigations, so that anyone could access them for free. Today NASA, following this policy, is releasing much of the software they have developed and made it available to anyone.
NASA Software Catalog
This is the third time NASA publishes software, something that the agency has done since April 2014, and has been useful for students and companies, as well as for other agencies that have found useful tools and some curiosities.
This new software catalog from NASA includes a host of programs for all platforms, including iOS and Android. To download, we only have to fill in a form where we will give our name and use that we will give the program, because due to the nature of these tools, some can only be used in the United States, but here it is necessary to emphasize that everything is available for free.
The programs are divided into 15 categories, where we can find things that will not be very useful at home, such as software for launching spacecraft, to real gems such as Earth monitoring systems, ship simulators and environments for astronauts In the ISS, as well as a large number of 3D models, images, textures, and atmospheric references for some bodies of the solar system.
Also, we will find software that will provide us with reports of the meteorological activity of our planet, with coronal mass ejections and masses and changes in the magnetosphere. In general these are tools that will serve for educational and research tasks, and best of all is that we will not have to pay a penny for them.
