You’ve been selected as Space Apps 2016 Top 25 People’s Choice: – a growing community

Of the 161 People’s Choice nominations of NASA’s Space Apps Challenge this year, our Stuttgart’s project rose to the top. The NASA jury loved your „creative interpretation of the challenge“ and informed us about their nomintation.

Congratulations Team!!!!

The team worked hard during the 48h hackathon to create autonomous farming, through machine learning on basis on collaborative gaming for off-earth as well as on-earth applications.
For achieving this, they set-up a demonstrator green-house that will be used as the baseline farming hardware for our game.

Voting for the People’s Choice Top 25 semi-finalists will begin Monday, May 9th at 2 p.m. Eastern and will be open through Sunday, May 15th at 2 p.m. Eastern. At this time, Space Apps will take a break to verify the votes before moving forward with the Top 5 finalists, which will be open for votes the following week.

How Voting Works:

  1. Voting will take place on a special ballot page:
  2. The awards page will display the Leaderboard + all the other nominees:
  3. Citizens who already have an account on can vote. Others will need to sign up for an account.

If you like this growing community, fork our open-source code on github and start growing your own plants in your very own green-house, and please also consider voting for the team. The team that makes it to the end will receive invitations to attend a launch, most likely in September at the Kennedy Space Center.

Thanks so much for taking part in Space Apps 2016!!
