What is going to happen?

You have got an idea on greening up space but you simply lack the technical know how? You really want to help cleaning up space debris but you just don’t know where to start? GLOBART Space Hack operates as both, platform and process. You are welcome to bring your own idea to develop it in interdisciplinary exchange or get inspired by a given issue on “clean space”. Our mentors will provide you with all necessary tools to turn your vision into a elaborated project proposal. And how knows, your project might become reality soon.
