I am Astronaut Ron Garan. Last time you told me what NASA should do next, now let's start doing it. AMA about the International Space Apps Challenge
Last time we spoke I asked you what NASA should do next - we had a great conversation and now I want to tell you about an opportunity to take part in that future. I'm working with a team at NASA to throw the International Space Apps Challenge - a global space hackathon happening in 75 cities around the world on April 20 - 21, 2013. Our goal is to improve both life on earth and life in space and we've partnered with over 100 organizations around the world to help provide the opportunity of citizens around the world to contribute.
I'm incredibly excited about the potential of the Space Apps Challenge to kickstart many of the ideas you had in to a reality. We've crafted over 50 challenges to serve as inspiration for projects, and my hope today is that we can have a great discussion about Space Apps, how you can get involved, and how mass collaborations like this can propel us to a new age of space exploration.
