ADAM Hack Days 2017

On October 4-5, 2017, DIRAC Institute hosted the first ADAM HackDays with the B612 Foundation’s Asteroid Institute.

ADAM (Asteroid Decision and Analysis Machine) is a project led by the Asteroid Institute, aiming to better understand threats and opportunities coming from asteroids in the Solar System. ADAM will be a cloud-based system for large-scale precise integration and analysis of trajectories of asteroids, especially those that are potentially hazardous to Earth.

The HackDays brought together DIRAC researchers, Asteroid Institute Fellows, and community supporters for a first ADAM team meeting and two days of hacking on ADAM code.
