This project is using Flexible funding and will receive all pledges made by 6:54pm 16th June 2017

We are hoping to host a hackathon to coincide with World Asteroid Day on 30th June 2017. We may have some visitors from around the World who are part of the Space Community at the Hackathon as observers or judges. 

Having recently participated in NASA's Space Apps Hackathon we  came up with an Artificial Intelligence Solution to track Near Earth Objects and would love to see it made at the Hackathon. We also were at Imperial College in London and were part of the Kerbal Virtual Rocket design Team and another  challenge of the Hackathon would be to come up with prototypes of craft which could capture or destroy asteroids headed our way and the prototype would be tested using the Kerbal Space Program Simulation.

Corporate sponsers and media  are most welcome as we would need a venue and prizes and the aim is to raise awareness of World Asteroid Day.
