Celestia is an OpenGL-based 3D space simulation for Unix and Win32 that lets you travel through the solar system, to the stars, and even beyond the galaxy. Visit over 100,000 stars, 100 solar system bodies, and all known extrasolar planets.
KStars is a graphical desktop planetarium for KDE. It provides an accurate simulation of the night sky, as seen from any location on Earth, on any date. It has a host of tools for every astronomer and astronomy enthusiast!
Step is an interactive physical simulator. It works like this: you place some bodies on the scene, add some forces, such as gravity or springs, then click "Simulate" and Step shows you how your scene will evolve according to the laws of physics. You can change every property of bodies and ... [More]
The h5py package is a Pythonic interface to the HDF5 binary data format. It lets you store huge amounts of numerical data, and easily manipulate that data from NumPy. For example, you can slice into multi-terabyte datasets stored on disk, as if they were real NumPy arrays. Thousands of datasets ... [More]
Gravit is a gravity simulator which runs under Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. It's released under the GNU General Public License which makes it free. It uses Newtonian physics using the Barnes-Hut N-body algorithm. Although the main goal of Gravit is to be as accurate as possible, it also creates ... [More]
Aciqra (uh-SEE-kruh) is a free and open source virtual planetarium and sky mapping program which tracks celestial bodies including planets, deep sky objects and stars to an accuracy of a fraction of a degree for thousands of years into both the future and the past.
The main goal of the Debian Science project is to provide a system with all the most important free scientific software in each scientific field.
XMDS is a code generator that integrates equations. You write them down in human readable form in a XML file, and it goes away and writes and compiles a C++ program that integrates those equations as fast as it can possibly be done in your architecture.
The Mantid application framework provides a platform to support high-performance computing on neutron data. The framework will provide a set of common services, algorithms and data objects that can be extended further by specialised applications or directly by users if required. The main aims of the ...

The Finite Difference Template Library (FDTL) was created for the purposes of quickly solving partial differential equations using the finite difference method. It is implemented in C++ using both the object oriented (OO) paradigm and generic programming techniques (templates). It is meant to be ... [More]
