    Goddard Space Flight Center just released as open source a tool to perform space trajectory optimization and mission analysis. It appears to be quite cool.
    The General Mission Analysis Tool (GMAT) is a space trajectory optimization and mission analysis system developed by NASA and private industry in the spirit of the NASA Vision. GMAT contains new technology and is a testbed for future technology development. To satisfy NASA's mandate and maximize technology transfer, GMAT is an open source software system licensed under the NASA Open Source Agreement.​
    For more info, see the GMAT website, http://gmat.gsfc.nasa.gov

    I have been hoping for 20+ years that NASA might get around to doing that. On the other hand, few people had decent PC's.
