NASA Launches Space App Hackathon In Pasadena

Think you have some great ideas for the next, big space-related app? NASA is behind an event coming up in Pasadena on April 11, the International Space Apps Challenge, saying it is looking for participants in a "mass-collaboration" hackathon to develop apps both related to life on earth an in space. The challenge--which is run in 130 cities around the world--is being organized locally by Joe Brisbois, and is being held at the new Cross Campus Pasadena location. The event organizers say they are looking for people interested robotics, environmental science, wearable technology, astronomy or app development to participate in the hackathon.
