Mearth - Weather on Mars vs Weather on Earth

A 2013 NASA SpaceApps Challenge observing the temperature, pressure & wind speed on Mars and trying to match it with somewhere on Earth.

See progress at: mearthapp.heroku.com

Our test app

Data to compare

  • Temperature (high on mars, low on earth?)
  • Wind speed (comparable)
  • Pressure (*1000)
  • Radiation (how many hours would I last on mars today)
  • Oxygen/Nitrogen level (how much longer would it take plants to grow on mars)
  • Webcam image (from the closest match city)

Technical details

  • Build a Ruby on Rails web app to do the calculations and present the data nicely.
