NASA’s Artemis Base Camp will be a permanent outpost at the lunar south pole supported by logistical delivery systems developed by citizen science space innovators as part of the NASA Lunar Delivery Challenge
The catfish industry has had its ups and downs but remains one of the most important aquaculture industries in the US. Recent technological advancements have increased productivity, but catfish farmers still face significant challenges.
For decades, scientists have been trying to figure out how to eliminate unpleasant flavors from catfish contaminated by blue-green algae — a problem which causes expensive harvesting delays. Now, the USDA-ARS is asking the public to share their ideas via crowdsourcing.
NASA is sending people back to the moon! This mission will be extremely useful to fill critical knowledge gaps on the lunar surface, including furthering our understanding of the lunar environment and available lunar resources.
Hugo Shelley lives in the world of problem solving. With six HeroX challenge wins under his belt, Hugo's mission is to find solutions to big problems, using new technology, design, and collaborative thinking.
We were able to work with HeroX to draft challenge guidelines, promote the challenge to a targeted audience of interested parties, and ultimately draw a crowd of innovators from across the globe to submit proposals to address our challenge. We were quite satisfied with the number and diversity of both individuals and proposals that the challenge drew.
