This website was created by the Advanced Concepts Team of the European Space Agency in 2015. The website's purpose is to serve as a platform for space related competitions. We envision it to be a place for space enthusiasts from all over the world to set their creativity free and participate actively in the advancement of space and science.
The name "Kelvins" is at the same time the theme for the website and originates from the unit for temperature named after the physicist William Thomson, Lord Kelvin. To reach the absolute zero error is the target of many machine learning related competitions. One day, we will introduce further theme related functionalities, such as points measured as temperature in degrees and ranks according to the temperature of objects in space such as the surface temperature of the planets or other bodies in the solar system.
