Create your solutions to the new 2015 challenges!
3-2-1 LIFTOFF: Launch that Rocket!
Develop an experience that captures all the variables involved with making the launch decision.
Airburst Data Visualization
Create a way of visualizing the threat of atmospheric airbursts using newly released data gathered in the Bolide study. Build on any open source solutions you find, or create your own.
Asteroids 2025-2100 - Future History
NASA is looking for creative ways to show the value of asteroids as a destination for exploration that are just as valuable as the Moon and Mars in terms of developing space infrastructure, as they have no gravity well.
Create Your Own Asteroid Mission
Develop an asteroid mission and design the spacecraft. Implement the spacecraft and mission with the space flight simulator. Simulate the mission and identify future improvements for the simulation.
Deep Space CamSat
Design and model a feasibility demonstrator of a nano-satellite (e.g. cubesat) that can orbit and take pictures of deep space spacecraft during events of interest, e.g. planetary flybys.
Happy Moments From Space
This challenge aims at developing an application to send congratulation messages personalized for the recipient with images from space sensors stored in the science archives.
Neuromorphic Studies of Asteroid Imagery
We want you to design an automated mechanism for processing photometric studies of Asteroids (i.e. Light curves) using computer vision, pattern recognition or neuromorphic technologies.
Develop software applications and scripts that make an open hardware robotic observatory a souped-up Asteroid Hunting Machine.
Transient Watch – Daily News on Active Neutron Stars and Black Holes on Your Mobile Phone
Develop a mobile phone app to provide interested astronomers with ‘daily news’ on the transient high-energy sky, based on information available from public pages at NASA, the European Space Agency, the Japanese Space Agency, etc.
Visualize the Asteroid Skies
Create data aggregators and visualizations of asteroid data in meaningful ways that can educate the public about the need to explore asteroids and protect the Earth from them.
