NASA’s Meteorite Landings API gives users access to a comprehensive dataset of all known meteorite landings. The Meteorite Landings dataset contains information on over 34,000 meteorites including: place of landing, type of meteorite, size of meteorite, coordinates of discover, and whether the meteorites are 'valid' or 'relicts' (weather damaged meteorites). This API is REST formatted.
Thirteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Travel and Safety. A Highlight today includes an API to access a database of information about the universe in George R. R. Martin's popular fantasy novel series. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
