LOAD has won the International Space Apps Challenge 2015 competition organized by NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration in the category "Most Innovative Use of IBM Bluemix".
The event took place on April 11-12, 2015 at the ESA Business Incubation Center in Noordwijk, the Netherlands. The challenge was to develop open-source solutions for global needs that apply to both life on Earth and life in space.
LOAD developed a mobile application called SpaceStuff that enables interaction with astronauts.
Created in just 36 hours, this application allows users to get the location of astronauts living in the International Space Station (ISS) in near real time by simply pointing their smartphone at the sky and using augmented reality to track the ISS as it orbits the Earth. Then, users can communicate with astronauts via Twitter and learn more about the profile of each of these "space stars".
We thank NASA for organizing such a fun event!
