New York City Named as the Main Stage for Space Apps 2014!

NASA and other space agencies around the world are preparing for the third annual International Space Apps Challenge which will be held April 12-13. Participants will develop mobile applications, software, hardware, data visualization and platform solutions that could contribute to space exploration missions and help improve life on Earth. New York will serve as the main stage for this event.  It will be a two-day “codeathon”-style event and be locally hosted at more than 90 locations spanning six continents.  It will bring techy-savvy citizens, scientists, entrepreneurs, educators, and students together to help solve challenges relevant to both space exploration and social needs. This year over 40 challenges will represent NASA mission priorities and be organized in five themes: Earth Watch, Technology in Space Human Spaceflight, Robotics, and Asteroids. About half of the challenges are in the Earth Watch theme and they support the NASA Earth Campaign.
