The NASA 2014 International Space Apps Challenge is perhaps the largest hackathon in the Milky Way, spanning more than 90 cities around the globe, including San Francisco. NASA offers a range of challenges, from designing the next space-suites and tech wearables, to hunting asteroids, controlling satellites, and mapping weather patterns.
Constant Contact is hosting this year’s San Francisco challenge from its office in the city’s financial district, April 12-13, with more than 75 hackers signed up to participate. Keep up with all things Space Apps SF on Twitter: @SpaceAppsSF.
