NASA’s International Space Apps Challenge: Inspiring Innovation from Citizens and Students

NASA’s International Space Apps Challenge, or Space Apps, is the world’s largest hackathon - a 48-hour event that occurs simultaneously in cities around the world. Space Apps brings together coders, scientists, designers, storytellers, makers, builders, technologists, and everyone enthusiastic about space to address challenges we face on Earth and in space. Space Apps’s 6th annual event in April 2017 was our largest event to date, engaging over 25,000 participants from 69 countries, and reaching over 40 million people worldwide on social media.
