The aim of Space Apps Challenge, organized throughout the world since 2012, is to enable creative teams or individuals share their ideas and try to resolve the actual problems related to the Space and the Earth. During the previous years, the hackathon challenges were mainly related to the Space. The participants addressed the topics such as travel to Mars, solar system and aeronautics. This year topic is the Earth. The participants shall use information about our planet collected by NASA for years while trying to find out as much as possible about the Earth and its components such as oceans, earth and the living beings. Space App Challenge is the place where NASA gives the opportunity to all interested stakeholders to become a part of those science researches thus helping resolve numerous global challenges.
