NASA, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration, has started to churn out quite a few open source projects. Though this doesn’t have any impact on the blogsphere (yet), it’s exciting to see a government agency of this level working in an open source environment, effectively asking its citizens for help with projects, while simultaneously making some outstanding code available for anyone to use.

As an added bonus, the new code site is powered by WordPress.

    That is funny to hear that NASA would use a program like WordPress rather then building an in-house CMS. Though that is awesome and I feel open source is great since you get so many like-minded people from everywhere all contributing to make something perfect and amazing.

    Nice to see NASA are not trying to re-invent the wheel with regard to CMS.

    IUt’s about time. It’s bad enough we’re throwing away money on a program that hasn’t made a step forward in 20 years. I would;t want to pay for them to reinvent something thats already out there. Glad to hear about it.
