HullCSS – Local Winners of NASA Space Apps Challenge


This weekend I was part of team HullCSS, a team made up of 5 members of the Hull University Computer Science society. Together we entered the NASA spaceapps 2018 hackathon, and managed to win the Hull Local Award, qualifying for the Global competition. The 30 second video above was our  submission after a tiring weekend of work.

We used PlayCanvas, VisualStudio, and the C# MVC Framework in order to create our solution to the challenge. SpaceTrack is a visualisation tool that allows you to see and learn more about rocket launches, finding out where and when they’re happening for the next few years. I worked mainly in javascript, using playCanvas to provide engaging visuals and interactive functionality.
