THE EVENT

The International Space Apps Challenge -a NASA Open Innovation Initiative- is an annual two-day hackathon where teams of technologists, engineers, scientists, designers, artists, educators, entrepreneurs, developers and students across the globe collaborate and engage with publicly available data to design innovative solutions for global challenges.

THE CHALLENGE

The event embraces collaborative problem solving with a goal of producing relevant open-source solutions to advance space exploration missions and improve life on Earth.
