“All weekend long, civilians will be all up in NASA’s business.”

On Saturday and Sunday, volunteers will be hard at work in a marathon session of computer coding, engineering and general brainstorming as part of the annual International Space Apps Challenge.

More than 138 cities around the world will be joining Space Apps 2015 for the two-day competitive hack-a-thon to see who can come up with the best ideas for solving planetary and space challenges.

It’s the fourth year of the challenge that one Virginia participant called, “a global event where NASA is opening up all of their data and providing a ton of tools for developers in the world who want to help NASA solve mission-related challenges.”
