Since I'm a Hackaday member I thought I'd share this since it's such a cool challenge. Build something cool, document it and win a trip to space (or $196,883 in cash) plus over $500,000 in other prizes!

This year Hackaday is issuing a call to hackers, engineers, makers, and hardware startups from all over the world to focus their creative efforts on solving serious issues that face humanity. The global water crisis, pollution, climate change, food shortages, fossil fuel dependency, and many other big problems are waiting for new solutions. Now, one person with one idea can revolutionize the way we live our lives. Be that person. Astronaut looks pretty freaking cool on a resume too... I took part in the challenge last year and it was a ton of fun and I learned an awful lot by reading through all of the other awesome projects and discussing ideas with other contestants.
