The international NASA Space Apps Challenge has become the biggest global hackathon, engaging thousands of citizens across the globe in working to design innovative solutions to global challenges in 48-hours.

Space Apps 2014 gathered over 8,000 global citizens in 46 countries and 95 cities participated. Now the ship has landed to Helsinki.

The aim is to solve, design and engage with fellow enthusiasts and present their challenges globally. Space Apps brings together technologists, scientists, designers, artists, educators, entrepreneurs, developers and students with publicly available data.

The success of Space Apps relies truly on the local organisers, experts and volunteers in making the event as successful as it can be.

For the first time The 2015 Space Apps Challenge will be hosted in Helsinki by Idean & Aaltoes at Startup Sauna. Our initiative is to bring all you bright minded hackers together. This year’s themes are Outer Space, Earth, Humans and Robotics.
