Questions like this one Energy cost of bringing the space shuttle external tank to orbit make me wish there was some sort of embeddable collaborative math option. Something that would let you create a Mathematica/Sage/MathCAD documents, embed them in a question/answer, and allow others to fork it with suggested edits.

Anyone know of something like this?

Update: The closest I have seen for this is Mathics.

There isn't a way to do exactly what you're asking, but there could be a way to write equations.

You see, there is this really cool thing called Mathjax (Google it!), which allows you to write really amazing looking formulae, etc.

However, it is only enabled where Stack Exchange feels it is needed. We are trying to get it enabled for this site in this discussion.
