What is Pramantha.
Pramantha is a solution to pave the way towards open and distributed space exploration through data analysis and web applications.
Pramantha platform originates from a team of students and researchers that met at 2014 NASA Space Apps Challenge in Rome,
the journey beginning here will guide users through experiences revolving around space science and exploration.
The first step is going to be Xploration,
an App that lets users build their own nanosatellites using real-world off-the-shelves CubeSat
instruments. More games, data-tools and scientific apps are going to be present in the platform in
the next months to give users the possibility for a personal look into Space through data-visualization technologies and games.
What are space data.
We are creating an integrated datacloud infrastructure that combines data retrieved by NASA, ESA and JAXA’s orbital
and non-orbital missions, sensors, relevant scientific knowledge from physics and engineering, unstructured and textual
data, such as webpages, articles and scientific publications related to space science and the space economy.
What is the future about.
Earth is the cradle of humanity, but one cannot live in a cradle forever.
Konstantin E. Tsiolkovsky
Thousands of rovers and micro-probes will be surfing the System, controlled by many private and public institutions and,
eventually, by private citizens, with the goal of collecting and sharing data. Space is too vast to have
restricted access: cheap technologies as micro-satellites, citizen science, open research, private launchers, multidisciplinarity,
and always more specialized knowledge are taking part to the adventure.
With the support of users, the team of researchers developers and artists we gathered is willing to shape these energies through Pramantha, a cutting edge network of Web services in the cloud who
aggregates data from multiple sources to contribute to awareness about the future of space exploration.
