KAstrometry is an astrometry program for KDE. It is written in Python. It aims to be a good tool to make measurements of objects in space from images taken by CCD cameras. Such measurements might be used to find orbits of astroids or record the brightness of variable stars. One day, it should be able to record an object's position, detect stars, and find coordinates using star catalogs.
setirotate automatically spawns the SETI@Home commandline client, rotating it through work units in a work unit cache. You can configure the number of work units to store, the number of processes to run simultaneously, the number of simultaneous result-upload/workunit-download transfers, the time interval within which its allowed to perform said transfers, and the timeout interval for when a transfer fails. It will immediately start working on a work unit when the previous one finishes, while uploading the newly finished result (if the upload interval permits) in parallel. It strives to always keep something running.
The Astro::ADS module is an OO Perl interface to the Astrophysics Data System (ADS) abstract service. The ADS is a NASA-funded project whose main resource is an Abstract Service, which includes four sets of abstracts: astronomy and astrophysics, instrumentation, physics and geophysics, and Los Alamos preprint server.
discord is a very simple Python module that allows for conversion from normal dates (via 'time.time', 'time.localtime', etc.) to Discordian dates. The module can either be used as a standalone command line application (which prints the current date in Discordian form) or as an extension module.
PAPFIP (Python And PGPLOT-based FITS Image Plotter) is a FITS image plotter based on the Python bindings to the pgplot graphics library. It is intended as a non-interactive (command line or script-driven) astronomical image plotter intended for the automated or repeated production of finalized publication-quality Postscipt files, rather than a method of inspecting or visualizing the data.
