Free NASA Software!

From the NASA press release: NASA has released its 2017-2018 software catalog, which offers an extensive portfolio of software products for a wide variety of technical applications, all free of charge to the public, without any royalty or copyright fees. Available in both hard copy and online, this third edition of the publication has contributions from all the agency’s centers on data processing/storage, business systems, operations, propulsion and aeronautics. It includes many of the tools NASA uses to explore space and broaden our understanding of the universe. A number of software packages are being presented for release for the first time. Each catalog entry is accompanied with a plain language description of what it does. “The software catalog is our way of supporting the innovation economy by granting access to tools used by today’s top aerospace professionals to entrepreneurs, small businesses, academia and industry,” said Steve Jurczyk, associate administrator for NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) in Washington. “Access to these software codes has the potential to generate tangible benefits that create American jobs, earn revenue and save lives.” NASA published the first edition of its software catalog in April 2014, becoming the first comprehensive listing of publicly available software to be compiled by a federal government agency -- the largest creator of custom code. Since then, NASA has shared thousands of its software programs with students, industry, individuals and other government agencies. “Software has been a critical component of each of NASA’s mission successes and scientific discoveries. In fact, more than 30 percent of all reported NASA innovations are software,” said Dan Lockney, NASA’s Technology Transfer program executive. “We’re pleased to transfer these tools to other sectors and excited at the prospect of seeing them implemented in new and creative ways.” The searchable catalogue is here: Wouldn't it be cool to use NASA code in your next project?

Free Animation Software? Answered

Hey, I recently got really into animation, like the type done at Pixar, and I was wondering if anyone knew a nice, free software for animation purposes. I'm not talking about Powtoon or anything like that, I would like to make the characters using softwares, not pre-made circles and rectangles. I'd prefer online software, but it can be downloadable. But my biggest thing is that it needs to be free. Google hasn't been much help in this matter, and I was wondering if any of you animators knew. I'm looking to make movies with this. Thanks for the help! Best Answer chosen as soon as possible!!

Free domain name registration? Answered

Hi!  I was wondering if anyone knows if there is free domain registration out there.  I don't mean a subdomain like or anything like that, I want and I also don't need hosting as I have my own server.  I'm pretty sure that there isn't anything like that out there, but I thought that if anyone would know, it would be someone on here.  If there isn't a free alternative, I currently use for my domains that I already own, so is there a better registrar, or am I better off with 1and1? Thanks for your help!

Free Energy... NOT From Saltwater!

This one's for Kiteman. Right after an independent cancer cure researcher in Ohio discovers that he can make saltwater burn, we get a story from the UK about a water heater with an efficiency of 250%-300%.The device seems to break the fundamental physical law that energy cannot be created from nothing - but researchers believe it taps into a previously unrecognised source of energy, stored at a sub-atomic level within the hydrogen atoms in water. The system - developed by scientists at a firm called Ecowatts in a nondescript laboratory on an industrial estate at Lancing, West Sussex - involves passing an electrical current through a mixture of water, potassium carbonate (otherwise known as potash) and a secret liquid catalyst, based on chrome. full story

How do I splice 2 cell phone voice cables together

I have a Palm Treo 700p and a PhoneLabs Dock n Talk that I'd like to connect. Currently, the only way to connect them is via Bluetooth, which stinks, as there is a long lag between placing/answering a call and making the actual connection. Some phones connect via cable, which has no lag (these cables carry voice, similar to a handsfree cable). I've got the cable that plugs into the Dock n Talk box and I've got two different cable choices for my Palm (2.5mm headphone jack for voice/handsfree, and a Palm/USB data cable: Can I splice anything together to connect the Dock n Talk to my Palm via cable?
