Just 5 days 'til Space Apps! Over 5,000 registered space geeks are getting pumped for the biggest international hackathon ever...are you?

Space is getting hacked on April 20-21 in the Second Annual International Space Apps Challenge. This hackathon is happening in 75 cities across the globe. Join an event near you to collaborate with NASA on selected challenges that can better life both on earth and in space.

You may find ďCatch a MeteorĒ tracker interesting. This is a challenge to create an app that would allow observers of a meteor shower to trace the location, color and size of the shooting star.

Maybe agriculture interests you. Help NASA in the ďBackyard Poultry FarmerĒ challenge to create a poultry management system for backyard farmers.
