Bonanza!
Corina Marinescu originally shared to UNIVERSE:
 
NASA Released Tons of Free Software to the Public
NASA recently published the second annual Software Catalog, a free resource that contains tools used by some of the top scientists in the world. The programs that guide spacecraft into the outer reaches of the solar system and help the Curiosity rover traverse the surface of Mars can be yours at no cost. The tools are divided into 15 categories, including aeronautics. propulsion, and system testing and handling. The release of the software programs is the result of a 2011 White House memo that promoted the positive impact of sharing government agency research with the private sector.

Give it a try here:

Excerpt: "So for the six hours in the middle of a sunny day, an area the size of a small backyard swimming pool will receive about 288 kilowatts of energy. That’s nearly 10 times what the average US household uses in an entire day!"

"... it’s in the vanguard with GIMP of what could – finally – be shaping up as a credible alternative to Adobe, freeing us from the mental (and growing fiscal) lock that one relatively small company holds over digital creative types."

At last!  Now that protected bike lanes are a federal mandate, there's a chance we might see them roll out in our lifetime here in the States like our EU friends have been enjoying for many years.

Next time you run into an ignorant congress member who supports requests for limiting online security, just forward this URL to them.

Intentionally weakening any security system isn't just bad for personal privacy, it's also bad for business and national security.
Diffie-Hellman downgrade weakness allows attackers to intercept encrypted data.
