   Dear Mr. DeVits,

 The NASA space apps hackathon is getting a Boston presence for the first
time this year. Is it possible to email the information below to the CS
department? The link to the info session (held at MIT Media Lab on March
22) is included in the message. Please let me know if you have any

 Thank you,

 Hack Space. With NASA.

 The International Space Apps Challenge is an international mass
collaborative hackathon focused on space exploration that takes place over
48-hours in cities around the world. Held April 12-13 the event embraces
collaborative problem solving with a goal of producing relevant open-source
solutions applicable to both life on Earth and life in space.

 Challenges are in Data Visualization, Software, Hardware, Citizen Science.

 This year we expect to have about 40 challenges that support NASA's
mission directorates in five themes: Earth Watch, Technology in Space,
Human Spaceflight, Robotics and Asteroids. NASA is leading this global
collaboration along with a number of government collaborators and 100+
local organizations.

 In 2014, Boston joins this event for the first time. Join us and build
something awesome.
