Various APIs for asteroid data, space phenomena observation conditions, satellite images, and more.
NASA publishes APIs!
The last time I looked at their stuff, circa 1998, they pretty much only published text-based data files, along with descriptions of the COBOL-derived formats. This is exciting; I’ll have to take a look. :)
There’s a few that just look like an inscrutable Javadoc dump (which may have interesting data nonetheless) but also some very friendly ones! I really want to clear time to do anything with these.
here is an example of querying for the star labeled as Sun.
That is cool!
