Cosmix is a web audio editing platform designed to mix unique space-related sounds from NASA with a library of musical tracks. Cosmix was created by a team at Salva O'Renick in Kansas City, MO., as part of the fourth annual NASA International Space Apps Challenge.

Cosmix uses the HTML5 Filesystem API as part of it's functionality. Currently (as of 4/19/2015) Google Chrome is the only major web browser that uses this technology.
Features in the future are:
- Naming and saving a song
- Rendering engine
- Export song to Soundcloud
Audio resources are a mixture of NASA Space Sounds as well as loops from Looper Man.
