Spin Name

Fedora Astronomy Spin

Summary

The goal is to create a Live media spin containing a set of tools for astronomers and astrophysicists. This includes observatory control as well as scientific data analysis and astrophotography.

Status

Owner

Detailed Description

In both amateur and professional astronomy and astrophysics Linux is a very popular operating system. More and more data analysis is performed using Python, especially the astropy project is a quite new effort providing a professional toolchain. The Astronomy Spin provides a complete scientific Python environment (2 and 3) as well as the AstrOmatic software. For observational astronomy, KStars provides a complete solution for astrophotography using the INDI library. In addition to an astronomical collection of packages the spin also adds a menu for astronomy to make work more comfortable.

User Experience

  • Powerful completely open-source and free tool for amateurs and professionals.

Benefit to Fedora

At the moment, there is no such distribution which offers a set of professional open-source tools for astronomers and astrophysicists and Fedora is very popular in astronomers' environment (that it is strongly linux-based).
