Freebies From NASA


That’s right, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is giving stuff away. No rocket jet packs or free rides on the shuttle I’m afraid, but if you head over to the Glenn Research Centre website you will find a great selection of free software. There’s something for everyone, especially all of you budding aeronautical engineers and jet engine designers out there, but if, like Propellerhead, you fancy a crack at creating a kite or flying a model rocket then take a look at KiteModeler and RocketModeler and RangeGames is a fun way to work out the fuel usage, acceleration and velocity of aircraft… But seriously the software should be of real interest to students, graduates and those involved in the study of making things fly and even if you’re not into the science stuff, there are plenty of other things to see and do around the site. And don’t forget there’s a full archive of tips, and lots of new ones to try out on the PCTopTips website.
