#### Full News ####
We, AerospaceResearch.net (a DGLR student team at the University of Stuttgart) are proud in bringing back the NASA Space Applications Challenge (Space Apps) to Stuttgart[0].
This year the goal is have a bigger, better event as well as a small head-start to give us a better chance at winning one of the awards. And we are inviting you to become a part of it!

The Space Apps Hackaton event will be held during 11.-12. April, we will open the doors at 13:00 o'clock on Saturday and you can always come and join during the full weekend. For early birds, we will already open the location Friday, 10. April at 20:00 o'clock for a warm-up and mingling phase in our location at Stuttgart hackerspace shackspace.

There will be several challenges and projects provided by NASA for you to work on. Just visit https://2015.spaceappschallenge.org/challenge/ and select one.
The AerospaceResearch.net team is working on the Distributed Ground Station Network[1] for tracking small satellites and its proof-of-concept project BigWhoop, a global sensor grid for radio spectrum monitoring with software defined radio. You can either join the team or work on any of the other projects.

We already hosted Space Apps in Stuttgart's creative hackerspace shackspace in 2012 and it was a great event for working on space projects within an interdisciplinary team as well as for networking and founding a start-up.
So feel invited to be part of this great space event and the global space community!

For more information feel free to contact us.
There will be food ordering and a free box of Club Mate Cola! And we will also have free "DVB-T sticks" as give-aways, because these will be our sensors!.
You can even join the team from abroad, or you just attend one of the many other Space Apps locations[0]!

Just come and hack space!
