The SpaceHack is a new 24-hour hackathon event powered by Technoport and InTech that aims at exploring the potential of future space industry ideas and turn these into concepts. This event is hosted at the Technoport, Belval (SkyfloX main offices) and sponsored by the Luxembourg Space Agency (LSA). SkyfloX was one of the 5 topic sponsors and presented the participants with the challenge to use the ORCA system to raise climate change awareness.
Team Uranus came up with an interesting approach to tackle a very contemporary issue: frequently monitoring air quality, something that can be enabled through the high revisit potential of the ORCA system, and warn citizens in advance, while at the same time engaging users in initiatives to e.g. clean trash, or plant trees. Team SkyfloX won the first prize with this solution, congratulations!
