If the height of human endeavor lies in exploring the space, then we are drawing closer to that through the instrumentality of the NASA Space Apps Challenge. The technologies that were showcased in the competition of 2017 are capable of not only taking us to the stars, but can also get the stars closer to us.

In the hackathon named NASA’s Space Apps Challenge, young developers and space enthusiasts were given the task of finding solutions to problems being handled by experts. This codefest has been a gathering of best brains that collaborate to discover enduring solutions to mankind’s problems.

More than 15,000 technologists, architects, manufacturers, newsmen, designers, scientists and programmers slugged it out in this year’s edition. Issues of managing natural disasters, chronic inroads by invasive species, excessive use of energy, and hunger in the world were tackled. Space Apps global involvement is growing rapidly and many more countries join the challenge network every year. For instance, this year the hackathon was hosted in Ukraine thanks to Max Polyakov, managing partner at Noosphere Ventures.

The volume of data collected and disseminated by NASA is too much for it to handle. This is what Data Analytics solutions in earth observation and imagery analytics by EOS is meant for. According to Max Polyakov, one major issue that the 2017 event addressed was how to get this data to more people. This is what EOS Inc. of Noosphere Ventures and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration are championing.

That fact can only be established with numbers, and data is the core of science is not lost on them. However, when an overly huge chunk of data is available, it could lead to some doubt about the facts that are coming out from it. This is mitigated when people are made to get hold of this data in its original form and disperse it to the world.
