The International Space Apps Challenge is an international mass collaboration 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 (hackathon) to address global needs applicable to both life on Earth and life in space.
Relevant products that we explained in the intervention, interview and the stand: Firefox OS (Demos, Hacks, Web Apps and more), Firefox Web Browser, The Marketplace store, The Free and Open Web. So, the most important thing that we commented with people in the event is that Mozilla and Movistar in Chile launched the Firefox OS mobile phone with Alcatel OneTouch Fire.
