The 12 Galactic-Cool Teams At The Garage48 SpaceTech 2016 Hackathon

It has been an exciting 24 hours so far here at the Garage48 SpaceTech 2016 hackathon in Tartu, Estonia. 24 hours more to go and more work is to be done. Today the 12 teams have received help from the business-design and marketing-business mentors, who are having a great time seeing the prototypes coming together and seeing the inspiring teams. One of the mentors Erika Ilves also give a small talk today on she went from tackling climate change to facing the 16 challenges human civilization is facing. The answer to these challenges - space. Erika now works on creating fuel stations in Earth's orbit and is urging more people to think outside of the Earth bubble.
The teams are now also developing solutions for SpaceTech with projects ranging from space gardening to space corrosion protection to making love in space possible!
