Many young children only think of being astronaut to being involved in the space industry not knowing there are many options available out there. Furthermore, there is usually no guidance to how they can achieve the career of their dreams.

How we built it

Backend will be in Ruby on Rails to get it up quickly. Frontend will be a mobile application built using react native. This way we can create apps for both Android and iOS using just one framework.

Challenges we ran into

Finding an impactful pain point, we made several iterations and decided that career opportunities in space industry are quite little known. It is also most difficult to judge suitable candidates for space roles like scientist, data analyst etc.

Accomplishments that we're proud of
