NASA has a few challenges for Philly hackers: Recreate the sounds of space using "Earth-bound objects." Design a satellite for an upcoming Mars mission. And that's just the beginning.

NASA has a few challenges for Philly hackers: Recreate the sounds of space using “Earth-bound objects.” Design a satellite for an upcoming Mars mission. And that’s just the beginning.

Philly is the Global MainStage for NASA’s International Space Apps Challenge, a worldwide space tech hackathon that will take place on April 20-21 as part of the third annual Philly Tech Week presented by AT&T.

RSVP here.

That means, as NASA Open Gov Community Advocate Ali Llewellyn put it, that Philly will play host to something of a “a mission control for intergalactic space collaborations.” Callowhill GIS shop Azavea is organizing the event locally.

Read more about the local partnership in this blog post from Azavea community evangelist and Space Apps local lead Andrew Thompson, and find the Philly hackathon prompts here.
