NASA’s second annual International Space Apps Challenge will take place April 20 and April 21 in more than 75 cities around the world. The technology development event seeks to bring tech-savvy developers and citizens together to solve challenges here on Earth by creating innovative software, data visualization tools and mobile app solutions for more than 50 challenges identified by event organizers.

We recently spoke about the International Space Apps Challenge with Sean Herron, a technology strategist and contractor on NASA’s Open Government team. He shared with us why NASA is hosting the event, some of the challenges he’s most excited about this year and how you can get involved—whether you know how to code or not.
