Aciqra is a night sky simulator to show the sky and celestial objects. It uses the highly precise Aloac program to calculate highly accurate positions for planets, stars, comets, and everything else in the sky for thousands of years into the future. It can load a variety of catalogs and even custom ones with a bit of extension.

BOTEC is a simple but useful calculator that assists with astrophysical, orbital mechanics, and space navigation calculations. It is a "back-of-the-envelope calculator" rather than an industrial-strength calculator, although this may change in the future. It is primarily intended for people familiar with physics and Python, and as such is unlikely to be useful to the average end user. It includes solar system data, and all values are strictly in SI units.

The FLASH code is a modular, adaptive, parallel simulation code capable of handling general compressible flow problems in astrophysical environments. It has been designed to allow users to configure initial and boundary conditions, change algorithms, and add new physical effects with minimal effort. It uses the PARAMESH library to manage a block-structured adaptive grid, placing resolution elements only where they are needed most. It uses the Message-Passing Interface (MPI) library to achieve portability and scalability on a variety of different message-passing parallel computers.
