Some of the fun data I'd love to see available:

* Space Debris tracking data
* Data from the LRO and MRO
* Diagnostic Datasets from a wide variety of deep space vehicles
* Keppler Data Sets

Some of this is already available in some form or fashion.  But I didn't
bother to check to confirm.  Just a sort of stream of thought on what data
would be fun to play with.
