Hello,

 

I'm one of the two winners in the SIX global winners categories, but unfortunately our project is not listed here. You can see the official webpage ( https://2014.spaceappschallenge.org/awards/ ) where it displays prominently our project, Space Helmet. I hope that you can correct this mistake.

 

Thanks,

Francisco Presencia Fandos

Concept
This is a great idea. It gives NASA the opportunity to look at some outside ideas, and given them so fuel for creative fire on internal project. 

New software ideas like this can help people think differently about space. I think that there is not enough understanding about the universe for most - apps may be the best avenue for educating people.
