On April 21st and 22nd, NASA along with governments and organizations from around the world will be competing in the International Space App Challenge.
The objective is to create an application that combines the ideas and data collected from around the world that could contribute to future missions and help improve life on Earth.
Michael Green, general manager of the Australian Government's Space Policy Unit said in an article posted by Yahoo news "The International Space Apps Challenge is a fantastic opportunity for individuals around the world to create new ways to use space-derived data to save lives, transform industries, and connect us more deeply with our world, space applications technology underpins critical sectors such as navigation, communications, emergency management, agriculture and climate science."
Chris Vein, deputy U.S. chief technology officer for Government Innovation at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy said in the same article "Open government is more than simply releasing data. It is a fundamental shift in the way government interacts with citizens. This apps challenge is an opportunity for governments to involve citizens in solving some of the most challenging problems facing our Nation and the world, and the White House is excited that NASA is at the forefront of this worldwide effort."
It is amazing that we hold our HTC smartphones in our hands everyday and never really know the possibilities.
