1. The International Space Apps Challenge (spaceappschallenge.org) was truly a global collaboration, with thousands of people and organizations around the world participating. This event celebrated technology development in its most positive context—using minimal resources and maximum brainpower to create outside-the-box solutions in response to compelling challenges. The six global winners were announced Friday at a reception held by Innovation Endeavors and Talent House in Palo Alto, CA.

    Contained in the ceremony: (click on a timestamp to jump directly to the clip)

  2. This is a global finalist video submission for the 2012 Space Apps Challenge.

    Much of the image data from NASA's Planetary Image Atlas is in the VICAR format, which was unreadable by any existing open source image conversion tools. We wrote and packaged vicar2png so that anyone can view, enjoy, and remix NASA's mission image data easily by converting VICAR files to the popular PNG image format.

    Our submission video demos vicar2png and showcases some beautiful images we converted from NASA's Cassini mission, as well as a short movie stitched together from raw Cassini data.

  3. Fragile Oasis is an effort to get everyone to see the Earth as a single home for humanity, and to inspire people to make a difference, changing things for the better. Our mashup focuses on giving a great user experience on the Fragile Oasis dataset by means of geolocalization, category filtering, data enhancement from multiple sources, etc.

    This project was developed during the 2-days International Space Apps Challenge, a hackathon organized by NASA that was run on every continent on Earth (and even on the ISS!). Our team was located in Lausanne, Switzerland.
    As soon as we read about the "Fragile Oasis: Map-a-Difference" project on the challenges page, we realized that making a difference is exactly what we look for in a hackathon! Michele Catasta pitched the mashup idea during the introductory meeting, and we formed a team with Sacha Bron and Frederic Jacobs. We also got help on API documentation and artwork from Florian Junker, Robin Würsch and Vito Pellizzani.
