The National Space Science Agency (NSSA) is partnering with one of the most renowned space agencies in the world, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) in the US.

This formal collaboration comes following NSSA’s sponsorship of the Nasa Space Apps Challenge – an annual hackathon that pools students, programmers, coders, aspiring scientists and inventors to solve real-world Nasa challenges.

The NSSA has been running the hackathon for two years. It ran two virtual events last year; one focused on Covid-19 and the other the Virtual Space Apps Edition.

“It is both my pleasure and pride to announce that the NSSA was officially invited by Nasa to join as a partner for this year’s Space Apps Challenge,” NSSA chief executive Dr Mohamed Ebrahim Al Aseeri said.
