Continuing with the initiatives NASA has been making to generate an open plain of communication and discussion surrounding scientific research, they have announced code.NASA: a central portal to "continue, unify, and expand NASA’s open source activities."
After just turning Alpha, some of the features are not present yet; but as is there's still much to be done. You can access information and resources from other users looking to make it big via the NASA open source route. Upcoming updates will include various other resources such as a forum board and a 'tools' section to access particular key pieces of software. All with the goal of building "tomorrow’s space and science systems... in the open."
We're really looking forward to seeing what fascinating ideas come out of this.
