The Space Apps universe produced 1,287 projects this year. Challenge owners, NASA experts and local hosts nominated 128 projects for People's Choice for 2016. Congratulations to our star solvers on their out-of-this-world work!
Thank you all for taking time to vote and share the love with your favorite People’s Choice teams. Our semi-finalists and finalists received international press coverage, and took social media by storm! We’re proud of all of the clever ways each team reached out to friends, colleagues, and neighbors — even door-to-door get-out-the-vote campaigns. You amaze us! We discovered some creative attempts to overcome the limit of one vote per day for each project [this is a hackathon, after all]. We’ve worked hard to validate every human vote to ensure that your voice was heard. With all the votes now counted: Mars Hopper is your 2016 People’s Choice Award Winner! Please give a virtual round of applause to Mars Hopper, along with all the teams in the Top 25.
