As part of the Open Government 2.0 initiative, NASA has been assembling a collection of links to open source code and projects on their open.nasa.gov site. “open.nasa.gov is a collaborative platform for the open government community to share success stories and projects they are working on. The content on this site is written by NASA employees and contractors across the agency. We are excited to highlight the ways that transparency, participation, and collaboration are being embraced by NASA policy, technology, and culture – and the amazing future that becomes possible because of that commitment.”
Among the open source code found there is the Interplanetary Overlay Network (ION) project, Object-Oriented Data Technology (OODT) middleware and a Python based command line Data Productivity Toolkit (DPT) for working on text files.
