This year’s NASA International Space Apps Challenge  will take place from October 7-8.

NASA Space Apps, in collaboration with NASA Transform to Open Science (TOPS), announces the 2023 NASA International Space Apps Challenge theme: “Explore Open Science Together.”  This year's theme celebrates the benefits and successes created through the equitable and open sharing of knowledge and data.

The NASA International Space Apps Challenge is a hackathon for coders, scientists, designers, storytellers, makers, technologists, and innovators around the world to come together and use open data from NASA and its Space Agency Partners to create solutions to challenges we face on Earth and in space.

Space Apps provides a platform for problem solvers worldwide to use free and open data from NASA and its Space Agency Partners. Space Apps Challenge teams use these resources to solve challenges written by NASA experts, featuring topics ranging from storytelling to software development, astrophysics, space exploration, and more.

Now in its 12th year, the NASA Space Apps Challenge is the largest annual and global hackathon. During the two-day event, participants from around the world form teams that use software development, engineering, art, storytelling, science, and other skills to solve science-related challenges written by NASA personnel.

American Space Dushanbe says the hackathon with a total fund of 2,500 US dollars will be done online and participants will solve tasks during two hours.      

Global winners will visit NASA headquarters in the United States.
