Create your solutions to the new 2014 challenges or build on one of the pre-selected solutions from 2013.
Asteroid Imagery Sharing
Design an open-source platform for sharing crowd-sourced asteroid imagery—including observations that have already have been logged, as well as newly observed Near Earth Objects.
Asteroid Mission Simulators
This challenge is to create a solution that would integrate a variety of simulators, game engines, databases, and data visualizers into a mission simulation that is distributed across the Internet.
Develop a game to travel across the solar system going from asteroid to asteroid.
Create an open source network of quick-response robotic telescopes that would enable fast follow-up observations of potentially-threatening asteroids.
Create Your Own Asteroid Mission
How would you send humans to explore an asteroid? How would you send a spacecraft to survey the asteroid belt? And how would you deflect an asteroid that was on a threatening course with Earth?
Make Your Own Asteroid Movie
Create an asteroid movie with real asteroid observation data.
Visualize the Asteroid Skies
Create data aggregators and visualizations of asteroid data in meaningful ways can educate the public about the need to explore asteroids and protect the Earth from them.
ASTEX - Asteroid Exploration
This project aims to achieve a better asteroid orbit prediction. To make it complete, it has been included not only the prediction part, but also how the technological system would be send to the asteroid.
We aim to make asteroid profiling accessible to a wider audience through a simple occultation crows-sourcing app and website. The app will include support information to assist sky watchers in finding and observing candidate occultations for their locatio
Catch a Meteor
This project is an Android application allowing users to visualize a 3D interactive map of the night sky and note their observations of meteors by simply pointing their device to the direction they saw it, and tapping the screen at the exact location.
Falling Star Finder
Use your phone to REALLY find meteors! Stargazers in your region will go out wherever they are, set their phones down on the ground, and the phones will simultaneously snap pics of the same sky, looking to catch a falling star in 3D!
The project aims to place a transponder and other experiments in the surface of Apophis by using a intelligent web that will attach to the asteroid.
