Join us for the 2015 SpaceApps Challenge!SpaceApps is a 2-day multi-disciplinary hackathon - for coders, marketers, product designers, data analysts, engineers, artists, etc. You don't need to be an expert about space, just willing to work cooperatively as a team to come up with a creative solution to one of the challenges set by the international panel. It's a lot of fun, a great way to put your skills to different uses. Let's #hackspace!

Our set task was to see how we could use the telemetry data from NASA and to use it in a mobile app for users to understand what it all means in an interactive way. This is achieved by creating a game which allows the users to interact with avatars which represent the astronauts. The avatars o... Visit Project
