Actually no - the NASA license is incompatible with
the GPL (at least) because:

http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html

# The NASA Open Source Agreement, version 1.3, is not
# a free software license because it includes a provision
# requiring changes to be your “original creation”. Free
# software development depends on combining code from
# third parties, and the NASA license doesn't permit this.

cheers,
Chris
