I've been following this while trying to find out how my NASA  
contractor status might impact how I can contribute to this effort.

However, I'd like to make the point that for a lot of modern  
visualization efforts that we do at the SVS for general public  
outreach, observations and simulations can be integrated into a single  
viz more easily if the tools can play nice together.  I have a strong  
interest in this area of the development.

Here's some items where I had to integrate very diverse datasets to  
generate the final product:


I used numpy, scipy, & pyfits for much of it, but also had to convert  
datasets to objects & texture with tools like VTK & PIL.

If there is a way to have the simulation and observation tools playing  
nice together, it would simplify outreach (and consequently funding)
