Top 6 C++ Space Projects

  • endless-sky

    Space exploration, trading, and combat game.

    Project mention: What software is so good you can’t believe it’s free? | reddit.com/r/AskReddit | 2023-03-17

    Endless Sky, yes it's a game but that's still a program and completely free. ;)

  • pioneer

    A game of lonely space adventure

    Project mention: What is the best space exploration game to play?,something like space engine and you can ride your own spaceship | reddit.com/r/space | 2023-02-28
  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • Celestia

    Real-time 3D visualization of space.

    Project mention: Why is OpenUniverse still in Debian repositories and there is not Celestia? | reddit.com/r/debian | 2023-03-01

    Upstream is on github, and seems to have their own debian/* packaging scripts, so might just be a simple upload.

  • PWSat2OBC

    Source code of the PW-Sat2 On Board Computer (OBC) software.

    Project mention: Simulate your own spacecraft with Asynchronix, an async discrete-event simulator | reddit.com/r/rust | 2023-01-17

    If you are looking for an example with similar complexity and real-time constraints as a cubesat, you could do worse than look at what the PWSat folks did (GitHub link). It's not introductory material, but I have been impressed to see such level of rigor being applied for cubesat development and validation.

  • ISS-Tracker

    ISS Tracker Pedestal Code (by dpelgrift)

    Project mention: ISS Tracker Pedestal - constantly points at the current location of the ISS | reddit.com/r/arduino | 2023-03-12
