Welcome to NASA Space Apps Challenge 2015 in Stockholm
Sweden is on a mission to space – and we want you on our crew!
We are proud to be part of NASA’s Space Apps Challenge and invite you to join us in Stockholm for a great weekend of creative problem solving where the sky is not the limit.
The Space Apps Challenge 2015 by NASA is a part of long-term initative and on-going national strategy for space tourism. The aim is to strengthen Sweden’s capability in commercial spaceflight industry and create a platform for cross-industry collaboration for global problem solving with local impact where diversity is the catalyst to innovation; http://tinyurl.com/kxxhvpp (in Swedish).
Come and build the future in space with Karin Nilsdotter, the Co-Founder and CEO of Space Travel Alliance and Managing Partner of Spaceport Sweden, two pioneering initiatives to realize the dream of commercial space travel, establishing Europe’s gateway to space in Swedish Lapland and a leading spaceline for tourism, research and education.
As we seek to inspire diversity and more women in the space industry, we work together with Datatjej, GeekGirlMeetup, Malvina and IVA Student Forum to reach our target of 50% women participants in this hackathon.

Your solution doesn't need to be only an 'app' in a traditional sense. It can be a mobile app, software, hardware, data visualization and platform solutions.
Your team will present the solution to a jury consisting of industrial professionals and well-regarded academics. The two best solutions will then compete on a global level!
We expect you to bring your own device (e.g. notebook, tablet) and other specific tools you might need for your project. Internet access (via WiFi) and power sockets will be supplied to all attendees. We will provide a free lunch, dinner and breakfast, as well as a constant supply of refreshments, tea and coffee, throughout the event.
The global winning team members will all be invited to attend (and bring one guest with them) to a NASA launch at Kennedy Space Center. Travel is not included, however. Last year's winners attended the Orion launch in December 2014.
