The Mars Simulation Project is an open source Java project to create a simulation of a future human settlement on the planet Mars.
INDI is an instrument-neutral distributed interface control protocol that aims to provide backend driver support and automation for a wide range of astronomical devices (telescopes, focusers, CCDs, etc.). Current supported devices include many telescopes, CCDs, filter wheels, focusers, and video cams. INDI is used in popular astronomy suites like Xephem, KStars, DCD, and Cartes Du Ciel.
Xplanet was inspired by Xearth, which renders an image of the earth into the X root window. All of the major planets and most satellites can be drawn, similar to JPL's Solar System Simulator. A number of different map projections are also supported, including azimuthal, Mercator, Mollweide, orthographic, and rectangular.
Stellarium renders 3D photo-realistic skies in real time with OpenGL. It displays stars, constellations, planets, nebulas and others things like ground, landscape, fog, etc.
Qastrocam is a capture program that can work with any video4linux device. Its main purpose is to do astrophotography. It can control a telescope to do guiding with the images received from the video device. It can also control the extended features of a webcam modified to do long exposure (several seconds) captures.
ChiantiPy is a Python interface to the CHIANTI atomic database for astrophysical spectroscopy. The CHIANTI atomic database for astrophysical spectroscopy provides the information necessary to calculate the emission spectrum from hot plasmas. ChiantiPy provides several top-level classes to access the database and calculate continuum and emission line intensities.
OREKIT (ORbits Extrapolation KIT) is a low level space dynamics Java library. It provides basic elements (such as orbits, dates, attitude, and frames) and various algorithms to handle them (such as conversions, analytical and numerical propagation, and pointing).

KStars is a graphical desktop planetarium for KDE. It provides an accurate simulation of the night sky, as seen from any location on Earth, on any date. The display includes 40,000 stars, 13,000 deep-sky objects, 2500 comets and asteroids, all 8 planets, and the Sun and Moon.
Cactus is a general, modular, parallel environment for solving systems of partial differential
equations. The code has been developed over many years by a large international collaboration of numerical relativity and computational science research groups and can be used to provide a portable platform for solving any system of partial differential equations.

Qastrocam-g2 is a fork of the Qastrocam project, Webcam capture software for astronomy. This fork adds support for RGB24 (luminance only) and YUYV. It has better generic V4L support (lx mode and resizing). Settings backup has been added. There is better parallel and serial lx mode support. There are a number of other changes and additions.
StarPlot is a GTK-based program, written in C++,
which can be used interactively to view
three-dimensional perspective charts of stars.
Charts can be recentered, rotated, or zoomed in or
out with a mouse click (this can also, of course,
be done via dialog boxes for more precision).
Stars may be viewed (or ignored) by spectral class
and absolute magnitude. Other features include
support for both celestial and galactic coordinate
systems, the ability to display extended
non-stellar objects, and a pop-up
Hertzsprung-Russell diagram. StarPlot is also
packaged with starconvert, a utility which
converts line-oriented stellar data records to
StarPlot format. Most star data files available on
the Internet can be converted this way if a short
file describing the original file format is
provided to starconvert.
SAOImage DS9 is an astronomical imaging and data visualization application. DS9 supports FITS images and binary tables, multiple frame buffers, region manipulation, and many scale algorithms and colormaps. It provides for easy communication with external analysis tasks and is highly configurable and extensible. DS9 is a stand-alone application that requires no installation or support files. It supports advanced features such as multiple frame buffers, mosaic images, tiling, blinking, geometric markers, colormap manipulation, scaling, arbitrary zoom, rotation, pan, and a variety of coordinate systems.

SkyChart is software to draw a map of the night sky for the amateur astronomer from a bunch of stars and nebulae catalogs. It shows the position of the planets, simulates an eclipse, and shows artificial satellites. It can also drive the telescope.
AstroAviBrowser is a small tool for astronomy imaging capture/processing. It allows you to open a video file, select the good frames, and save the new sequence in a new avi file using raw or lossless codecs. You may also de-bayer your frames and separate RGB plans. It's a kind of "AviRaw" for Linux.
