Rediscover the known Universe with NASA datasets

14:10/14:50

For many years humanity has been exploring the skies, dreaming of interstellar voyages and new planetary colonies. And you, do you want to go with us to discover the universe? It turns out that NASA has a great public dataset. One of then, the Kepler project dataset, is used by scientists to search for exoplanets, that is, planets outside our solar system. What if you could search for exoplanets by your own, using IT tools and a developer approach? In this talk we introduce you to the HelloExoWorld project that does just that. Join us, and help us to discover exoplanets!
