Inspiration

From a young age, I'm pretty sure all of us wanted to be an astronaut at some point. Exploring the solar system would be so fun! But, as we realized when we were older, it takes a lot of training to become an astronaut. We wanted to make it so that all the space enthusiasts have a chance to explore the solar system from the comfort of their own homes.

What it does

This is a website that displays space-related facts, a quiz (in progress), a solar system simulator, and live ISS coordinates page.

How we built it

We used a lot of Django/Python, CSS, Javascript and HTML (most of which was more advanced than we knew earlier) for the website. We also used ________ APIs and _______ libraries to achieve our final product.

Challenges we ran into

It can't be a Hackathon project if we didn't run into challenges, so of course, there were several. The main challenge for us was the code that was far more complex than we had ever done before, which took some time to learn. Other bugs were there, too, which we mostly ironed out.

Accomplishments we're proud of

  1. Creating a functioning website
  2. Increasing our knowledge of CSS
  3. Learning Astrophysics Formulae
  4. Educating ourselves on Space Facts

What we learned

We learned a lot... Like a lot, a lot. From CSS to wacky Space Facts, we have learned more this weekend than in any single lesson of Physics.

What's next for Travel-To-Outer.Space

4 words. Coming soon: Space Quiz.
