[News] NASA Might Bring Game to GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

NASA's MMO Video Game To Have A Linux Port?

,----[ Quote ]
| This game is still a ways from being released, but at the heart of this game 
| is the Unreal Engine 3 -- the same engine that powers Unreal Tournament 3, 
| America's Army 3, and dozens of other titles. Unreal Engine 3 is a 
| multi-platform engine that has an OpenGL renderer and is compatible with Mac 
| OS X and Linux even though we haven't seen any titles be released yet for 
| Linux.      



Bugzilla 3.2 has shiny NASA interface enhancements

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla has announced the official release of Bugzilla 3.2, a significant new
| version that adds a large number of major improvements.



NASA turns to open-source problem-tracking databases

,----[ Quote ]
| The software, called the Problem Reporting Analysis and Corrective Action
| (PRACA) system, was created by the Human-Computer Interaction Group at NASA's
| Ames Research Center, and is designed to give a wide cross-section of people
| in the Space Shuttle ecosystem access to a single database package for
| tracking problems with the Shuttle and its associated infrastructure.


Bugzilla used to build shuttle bug-tracking package

,----[ Quote ]
| The primary Open Source package used was Bugzilla, from the Mozilla
| Foundation. According to Vera, not only is the new system much less expensive
| and more streamlined than the software it replaces, it is also much easier to
| maintain. Rather than having to submit desired changes to the developers of
| proprietary problem tracking systems and wait for the revisions to be
| returned, NASA developers can make changes to PRACA on their own, often on
| the fly.


NASA ramps up weather research with [Linux-based] supercomputer cluster

,----[ Quote ]
| NASA's Center for Computational Sciences is nearly tripling the performance
| of a supercomputer it uses to simulate Earth's climate and weather, and our
| planet's relationship with the Sun.


Computer viruses in space!!

,----[ Quote ]
| Maybe they should run Mac or Linux.  Then they would have nothing to worry
| about at all, right?


Malware infects space station laptops

,----[ Quote ]
| Malware has managed to get off the planet and onto the International Space
| Station (ISS), NASA confirmed today. And it's not the first time that a worm
| or virus has stowed away on a trip into orbit.


NASA launches online historical image gallery

,----[ Quote ]
| Internet Archive, founded in 1996 to create an Internet-based library, will
| manage and host NASA's new interactive image gallery on the cluster of 2,000
| Linux servers at its San Francisco headquarters, said John Hornstein,
| director of the NASA images project for the group. The non-profit currently
| runs 2 petabytes of storage, Hornstein said.


Goddard's open source site

,----[ Quote ]
| NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., has established a Web
| site for open-source projects that were developed by center personnel for
| mission needs. By releasing such code into open source, NASA hopes to speed
| development of the software, as well as raise awareness of NASA research.


NASA Uses Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| He and I walked back over behind the guy to look. I pointed out the little
| bit of the heron you could see at the bottom of the screen, and he said "yep,
| it's Hardy." Then he added, "look what else he's running." "What?" "Compiz.
| You can see the shadows on the panels."


Fedora on the Final Frontier

,----[ Quote ]
| There has been a long standing rumor regarding NASA running Fedora which all
| of us in the Fedora community have been always intrigued by. Is it true? What
| are they doing with it there? Why don't they run RHEL. Fortunately enough, a
| couple of weeks ago, I got to experience NASA behind the scenes, first hand,
| and hang out with the coolest members of the Fedora community, and find out
| the answer to these questions and lots more.    


NASA tests Linux for spacecraft control

,----[ Quote ]
| On the software side, embedded Linux vendor Wind River says it was selected
| to "support the development of NASA's New Millennium Program Space Technology
| 8 (ST8) Dependable Multiprocessor." As part of its role in supporting the
| project, the company will supply its Platform for Network Equipment, Linux
| Edition (PNE-LE) for use on the DM system.    


At NASA, Windows Vista Isn't Ready For Launch

,----[ Quote ]
| Space agency among the growing list of federal agencies that
| have put a temporary hold on Windows Vista rollouts.


NASA tests Linux-based planetary surface exploration robots

,----[ Quote ]
| A Linux-based NASA lunar rover is on maneuvers -- and Internet webcams
| -- this week in the Arizona desert near Meteor Crater.
| [...]
| The K-10 runs Red Hat Linux, which NASA says was chosen for its large
| user base and application compatibility. Additionally, NASA notes that,
| "Linux's flexibility and scalability enable us to easily add, remove,
| and extend devices with minimal difficulty."

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
