I'm like this guy, wanted to be an astronomer but went into CS because it was the lazy easy thing.

Now I'm probably going to retire in a few years and would like to do something that matters before I'm too dumb and slow. I doubt I'll ever learn enough physics to advance the science, but I've seen what passes for software in academic settings, and I could certainly make the software suck less.

So what kind of software does astronomy need?
