  • stellarium

    Stellarium is a free GPL software which renders realistic skies in real time with OpenGL. It is available for Linux/Unix, Windows and macOS. With Stellarium, you really see what you can see with your eyes, binoculars or a small telescope.

  • Project mention: SkyMap | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-06-04

    This is very cool, and looks like it targets you wanting to look stuff up and I will probably use it at some point.

    But I feel that anyone looking at this and thinking "oh that's cool" should also try installing Stellarium (https://stellarium.org/). It lets you see what you can see in the night sky from any location/time on Earth, and is really useful for helping you identify what you're seeing in the night sky.

    I don't mean to distract from this, because it's also great. It's just a second tool that anyone with a passing interest in astronomy should be aware of.

  • Project mention: Google Earth Equivalent For Space? | /r/Astronomy | 2023-12-11

  • qvge

    Qt Visual Graph Editor

  • nanopolish

    Signal-level algorithms for MinION data

  • hector

    The Hector Simple Climate Model

  • Project mention: Most Earth system models are missing element of future climate puzzle | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-19

    As an engineer but not a climate scientist, it is really difficult to make sense of these models. They come in at least three levels of complexity, where simpler ones are used to verify the output of the more complex ones.

    If you want to try, Hector is a great one to start with: https://github.com/JGCRI/hector

    I wrote a little blog post with an overview of some of the open source models: https://possibleplanets.com/2022/05/06/how-to-forecast-the-c...
