You never know how far your #SpaceApps solution will go! Gema knows that first hand. Hear about her project Deep Asteroid, which was a 2016 finalist, and how she used NASA data and the open-source tool Tensor Flow.

When NASA issued a worldwide challenge to help them better track the asteroids and comets that surround Earth, Gema Parreño answered the call. She used #TensorFlow, Google’s machine learning tool, to create a program called Deep Asteroid, which helps identify and track Near Earth Objects.
