The people have spoken! This is the project that captured our hearts.

The International Space Apps Challenge, a part of NASA’s Earth Science Division is the world’s largest global hackathon.
It engages thousands of individuals and teams each year across the globe to work with NASA data in the building of innovative solutions to challenges we face on Earth and in space. Diverse and collaborative teams of technologists, scientists, designers, entrepreneurs, and others work together in a 48-hour sprint to develop answers to some of the most pressing challenges facing planet Earth.
