From the report: "NASA has released its 2017-2018 software catalogue free of charge to the public, without any royalty or copyright fees. This third edition of the publication has contributions from all the agency’s centers on data processing/storage, business systems, operations, propulsion and aeronautics. It includes many of the tools NASA uses to explore space and broaden our understanding of the universe. ‘The software catalogue is our way of supporting the innovation economy by granting access to tools used by today’s top aerospace professionals to entrepreneurs, small businesses, academia and industry,’ said Steve Jurczyk, associate administrator for NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) in Washington. ‘Access to these software codes has the potential to generate tangible benefits that create jobs, earn revenue and save lives.’" Amazing amount of quality software… it IS rocket science.
