The world is talking about GNU/Linux and Free/Open Source Software
5 Free Linux Astronomical Data Analysis Tools
Professional astronomers are in a very fortunate profession. They have the opportunity to continue their love of astronomy, travel the world, make significant discoveries, and get paid at the same time.
Professional astronomers spend far more of their time analysing data and writing articles than actually observing celestial objects. Amateur astronomers are also keen to analyse the data they have collated. Software that can process and analyse images is therefore essential to astronomers. Fortunately, high performance scientific software has always been a strong area for Linux.
To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, we have compiled a list of 5 high quality open source tools to analyze astronomical data. Hopefully, there will be something of interest here for both professional and amateur astronomers.
