NASA GrabCAD is hosting this challenge. If you want to join it, then complete the task till the last date, 22nd August. People’s ideas will be judged on how sustainable and useful they are for the project. There will be prize money of $7,000 for the best 5 submissions.
Actually, the US space agency is preparing several missions to find traces of life outside the Earth. Till now she has also launched many missions, but there are many challenges in space and NASA wants to complete every preparation to make its mission successful. Through Starshed, there is a preparation to reach that place in space, where man is still only thinking. In such a situation, if your idea works, then it will be a big thing, you will also become entitled to prize money.
NASA’s concept observatory is also being called HOEE (Hybrid Observatory for Earth Like Exoplanet). Many large telescopes will be used for this observatory in search of planets. Also, with the help of starshade to be deployed in space, a shadow will be cast on the stars of the exoplanet. In this way, scientists will be able to see the light coming from hitting the surface of the exoplanet, they will know what is there after all. Exoplanets are seen as planets full of potential for life. They are called exoplanets because they do not revolve around the Sun, but around other stars.
If you are interested in space science, then this is a great opportunity for you. By impressing NASA with your idea, you can become a contender for a huge prize money. For more information on this click on the link Do it.
