Submission + - Try your programming skills in space: DARPA Satellite Programming Challenge (gigaom.com)

null action writes: Want to have your code run on a satellite in space? Take a look at this. MIT Space Systems Laboratory and TopCoder are hosting a DARPA competition to create the best algorithm for capturing a randomly tumbling space object. Contestants in the Zero Robotics Autonomous Space Capture Challenge will compete in online simulations, and four finalists will have their algorithms tested aboard the International Space Station on small satellites called SPHERES. “In this challenge, you have no advance knowledge of how it will be rotating. We’re pushing the limits of what we can do with SPHERES and we hope to break new ground with this challenge,” said Jake Katz of MIT.
