The astropy package contains key functionality and common tools needed for performing astronomy and astrophysics with Python. It is at the core of the Astropy Project, which aims to enable the community to develop a robust ecosystem of Affiliated Packages covering a broad range of needs for astronomical research, data processing, and data analysis.
