We were inspired to try and find a solution to humanity's dwindling resources, and space fit the bill and the theme.
What it does
AstroWorth uses a WebGL API to simulate the orbital paths and relative challenges of potential asteroid mining sites. It also predicts the profit in mining an asteroid, as well as its mineral composition.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
There were some limitations in the currently available data which introduced a challenge in defining competent models.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud of successfully tying in so many different fields of study in order to build a compelling product.
What we learned
We learned a lot about building frontends and statistics.
What's next for AstroWorth
AstroWorth would greatly benefit from more available data - that is sure to come in the future.
