Space Apps Challenge

NASA approved.

In 2015 SEP brought the International Space Apps Challenge to Carmel, hosting the first site in Indiana. It is a weekend hackathon where teams of technologists, scientists, designers, artists, educators, entrepreneurs, developers and students across the globe collaborate and engage with publicly available data to design innovative solutions for global challenges.
These challenges provide opportunities for U.S. and global citizen scientists, engineers, and students to interact and contribute to space exploration through code development, data analytics innovation, open source software, and hardware.
— Deborah Diaz, agency chief technology officer at NASA Headquarters in Washington

2015 Projects

Launch Window

Launch Window is a website for space enthusiasts to watch live rocket launches, and share in the experience together through twitter and other social media platforms. Includes live feed of curated content describing why the launch/mission is important, key facts, and background information about the astronauts, team, and mission goals.

Team Members: David Aramant, Jeremy Jarvis, Sasha Kotlyar, Matt Moseng, Bob Nowadly, Chris Pierce, Ann Say, Trevon Sutton, Todd Trimble

Fireballs and Meteorites

The purpose of Fireballs and Meteorites was to learn R by practicing with bolide and meteorite datasets. The team tried to find linkages among meteor showers, dates of witnessed falls and composition. Looking at the dates of witnessed falls, can we make connections between yearly dates of showers and dates of witnessed falls?

Team Members: Laurie Gavrin, David Inman
