This is the "Only 6 days left to NASA Space Apps Challenge 2015" reminder.

I sent this email to Noisebridge because I know some of you are interested
in space (your Spacebridge project), so you might be interested in this
hackathon by NASA.
There is even a location in SF you could go to, but you can also
participate virtually and stay in Noisebridge or wherever you are and hack
there. For example we at shackspace (Stuttgart hackerspace, Germany), will
work on a Sensor Network in Software Defined Radio to monitor the spectrum.
If some of you attend the Cyberspectrum meetups on your list, then you know
how awesome SDR is for this purpose.

So feel invited and create some cool space projects. Have fun!

NASA Space Apps Challenge in a nutshell
* biggest global hackathon
* 2 days (11./12. April 2015)
* 4 space challenges, many open source projects (Outer Space, Earth,

#### Full News ####
We, AerospaceResearch.net (a DGLR student team at the University of
Stuttgart) are proud in bringing back the NASA Space Applications Challenge
(Space Apps) to Stuttgart[0].
This year the goal is have a bigger, better event as well as a small
head-start to give us a better chance at winning one of the awards. And we
are inviting you to become a part of it!

The Space Apps Hackaton event will be held during 11.-12. April, we will
open the doors at 13:00 o'clock on Saturday and you can always come and
join during the full weekend. For early birds, we will already open the
location Friday, 10. April at 20:00 o'clock for a warm-up and mingling
phase in our location at Stuttgart hackerspace shackspace.

There will be several challenges and projects provided by NASA for you to
work on. Just visit https://2015.spaceappschallenge.org/challenge/ and
select one.
The AerospaceResearch.net team is working on the Distributed Ground Station
Network[1] for tracking small satellites and its proof-of-concept project
BigWhoop, a global sensor grid for radio spectrum monitoring with software
defined radio. You can either join the team or work on any of the other
projects.

We already hosted Space Apps in Stuttgart's creative hackerspace shackspace
in 2012 and it was a great event for working on space projects within an
interdisciplinary team as well as for networking and founding a start-up.
So feel invited to be part of this great space event and the global space
community!

For more information feel free to contact us.
There will be food ordering and a free box of Club Mate Cola! And we will
also have free "DVB-T sticks" as give-aways, because these will be our
sensors!.
You can even join the team from abroad, or you just attend one of the many
other Space Apps locations[0]!

Just come and hack space!
