Hi Jake,

> Hello,
> I've just released a new Python astronomy package called astroML: 
> machine learning and data mining for astronomy & astrophysics. It's 
> built on numpy, scipy, scikit-learn and matplotlib, and implements 
> several more astronomical data mining and machine learning techniques 
> from the literature.  It also includes loaders for several interesting 
> data sets (many from SDSS, but there are others as well).  Importantly, 
> it has an extensive set of example code & plots showing how these data & 
> algorithms can be used & visualized.  You can download the released code 
> and see all 200+ examples at:
> 
>     http://astroML.github.com/
> 
> My hope is for astroML to become a community repository for well-written 
> algorithms & examples of data analysis in astronomy, and be a useful 
> resource for both research and teaching. I think this vision is 
> complementary to the vision of astropy, and I hope the two packages can 
> together encourage Python as the lingua franca of astronomical research.
> 
> The development version of the astroML code can be found on github at 
> http://github.com/astroML/.  I would appreciate any feedback or 
> suggestions - thanks!
