This weekend, NASA led the International Space Apps Challenge, a hackaton to solve the many challenges facing life on earth and in space. It sounded like a big project, but we didn’t quite expect this: it’s apparently the biggest hackathon of all time, with more than 9,000 people and 484 organizations creating more than 600 pieces of software, hardware, and data visualizations of public astronomical data. The projects are being reviewed now, and we can’t wait to see what they are. Space Apps Challenge
