In 2007, a small group of people began an intentional, collaborative experiment in open, transparent, and direct communication about your space program. Our goal was to enable your direct participation in exploring and contributing to NASA’s mission.

Many of us have since begun new adventures. This site will remain as an archive of the accomplishments of the openNASA experiment.

We have 133 projects qualified for global judging… and we’re excited to see which one is the People’s Choice!

Voting for the People’s Choice award starts tomorrow! You’ll go to the Awards page and click on the Vote button next to your favorite project. Anyone and everyone is eligible to vote for the project they consider most deserving of the title People’s Choice.

We are using Twitter to collect votes and have assigned a unique hashtag to each project. Individuals simply need to tweet @spaceapps with the hashtag of their favorite project to vote. This hashtag is not alterable, so please be sure that you are sharing the correct one so that we can track your support online.

If you have a Twitter account: everything should work from the website as long as you are also signed in to your Twitter account.

If you do not have a Twitter account: no problem! Go here to create an account. Once you have an account and are signed in, go back to the Awards page and select the project you would like to vote for.

Please help spread the word about your favorite projects! Voting is only open until May 17th. We want to hear what #SpaceApps project you believe deserves a special award.

The global judging panel is reviewing the 133 nominated projects to award Best Use of Data, Best Use of Hardware, Galactic Impact and Most Inspiring. These best-in-class awards will be announced on May 22 along with the People’s Choice winner. Want further details on the International Space Apps Challenge voting process? Go here to read more.
