NASA is bringing the Space Apps Challenge around the planet this weekend, as the agency seeks to bring software and aerospace together.

Baltimore is among the locales holding a hackathon-style event, looking to address challenges both on Earth and outside the atmosphere.

On October 20-21, Johns Hopkins University’s Homewood campus will play host to the session in Hodson Hall. The event is organized by JHU’s Applied Physics Laboratory and SpaceIE, a student-led group. Johns Hopkins is home to plenty of space-related activities. APL runs missions that send probes to Pluto and to touch the Sun. The university is also home to researchers working in astrophysics and other fields that unite under the banner of Space@Hopkins. Plus, the Homewood campus is home to the Space Telescope Science Institute, which runs science operations for the Hubble telescope.

At the Space Apps Challenge, Participants get access to NASA data, and mentors from the aerospace industry, according to an event description.
