Exploring the outer Solar System with Django

I'm a web developer at the Planetary Rings Node, part of the NASA Planetary Data System. Our small shop is devoted to archiving, cataloging, and distributing scientific data sets relevant to planetary ring systems. Our base of operations is the SETI Institute, where a research community is busy searching for and studying life in the universe. At the Rings Node I develop and maintain an outer planets space mission data search tool called OPUS which is built with Django. It lets users search data, browse images, and access its API via http. I'll demo OPUS and talk about the reasons we made it and our plans for its future, and we'll see some pretty pictures of the outer planets.
