NASA International Space Apps Challenge (ISAC) is the largest hackathon in the world. It is commissioned by NASA to get citizens to collaborate on its mission directives.  NASA ISAC 2021 Boston will be entirely virtual this year and will take place on October 2nd 9am (ET)- October 3rd 4pm (ET).


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. The event embraces collaborative problem solving with a goal of producing relevant open-source solutions to address global needs applicable to both life on Earth and life in space. NASA is leading this global collaboration along with a number of additional government collaborators and 100+ local partner organizations. Space Apps is a NASA incubator innovation program.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and in the interest of our global community’s health and safety, NASA and the Space Apps Global Organizing Team have made the difficult decision to make the 2021 hackathon an all-virtual event. Each local virtual event will be hosted by one of our Space Apps Local Leads — event leaders who will help connect registrants from their local communities to each other and to NASA.
