This challenge is all about your ideas for how to maintain a breathable atmosphere inside an extraterrestrial habitat.
If you are 17 years old or less, give us your idea for how to keep the air inside a habitat on another planet breathable. Your submission will be a single picture, schematic, or diagram that communicates the key aspects of your idea along with a short description. Up to 12 winners, 4 in each age category, will each receive a special HeroX badge to display on their user profiles and an official NASA certificate!
This challenge will recognize up to 12 winners, across three age categories. Participants may submit up to 5 different ideas, with each idea being a separate submission. Submissions from the same participant are expected to be substantially different from one another, and duplicative submissions will be screened out. Participants may only win one prize.
Age categories (up to four winners will be selected from each category):
- 10 years old and younger
- 11-14 years old
- 15-17 years old
Submissions will be evaluated by a judging panel, using the Judging Criteria shown below.
In addition to general glory and bragging rights, winners of this challenge will also receive a NASA certificate and a HeroX participation badge.
