Conference paper entitled "Opening Space for Humanity - Applying Open Source Concepts to Human Space Activities"

Abstract: With the open source paradigm gaining traction in a variety of fields, the question arises as to in what ways open source concepts can be applied towards space development endeavors. This paper examines the potential for applying open source towards human space activities. We find that open source holds much promise for benefiting space development endeavors. Open source can clearly be applied in the space software area, including modeling and design tools, testing, ground software, and flight software. The paradigm can, however, be extended beyond software, in areas such as system design, compilation of reference data, system verification & validation procedures and associated results, and relevant education and training materials. Many individuals around the world are highly motivated towards contributing to the expansion of humanity into space. Applying open source principles towards space activities can provide them with a means of doing so. A new organization, DevelopSpace, has been created to aid in the advancement of such activities, focused on building up the technical foundations for human space activities, and doing so in an open manner.
