Open Exploration in Outer Space

Open Source In Outer Space

NYC Camp | July 2015

In 2012, the world's leading space agency began a program that opened a gateway to outer space for everyone - the NASA International Space Apps Challenge. Since then, tens of thousands of people have joined a global community that solves problems to improve life on Earth and in space. You too can become a space hacker!

Outer space was once the sole province of nation-states and their military-industrial complexes, even serving as a theater for the Cold War between superpowers. In recent times, thanks to scientific advancements, reduced manufacturing costs, and increased sophistication in technology and materials, space science has become more commercially and publicly accessible now than in any other time in history - and many private individuals are taking the exploration of space into their own hands, often in direct partnership with formerly unapproachable government agencies.
