The first Challenge, held last year, resulted in more than 2,000 participants, with over 100 open source solutions and 71 featured challenges.
 
“What sets apart the International Space Apps Challenge from other events is that this is a collaborative opportunity to engage people from all over the world to participate in space exploration and develop state-of-the-art technology to improve life on Earth and in space,” said Nick Skytland, program manager of NASA's Open Innovation Program.
 
Registration for citizens will open on March 1 and the event itself will operate from 20-21 April. More details can be found here.
