On October 2-3, 2021 NASA is inviting coders, entrepreneurs, scientists, designers, storytellers, makers, builders, artists, and technologists to participate in a virtual hackathon--The NASA International Space Apps Challenge. During a period of 48 hours, participants from around the world will create virtual teams and use Earth observation data from 10 different space agencies, and have access to Meteomatics API to develop solutions to issues our world is facing.
Meteomatics has agreed to become a global collaborator and to help participants solve challenges set by the NASA Space Apps Team. To mark the Tenth Year of the International Space Apps Challenge, NASA is collaborating with nine international space agency partners to bring the worlds largest hackathon to even more communities.
Space Apps is managed by the Earth Science Division, Science Mission Directorate, at NASA Headquarters in Washington, DC. Meteomatics has been a global collaborator since 2018, providing free access to its rich and powerful Weather API to empower participants fulfill their ideas.
