Are you an armchair astronomer, genome enthusiast or molecular gastronomist? If so, Science Hack Day is back in San Francisco this November for science lovers of all stripes to give it their all in a 48 hour science hack fest.

From November 12 – 13th, you’ll spend 48 hours meeting similar minds, bringing together ideas and trying to show off your new creation at the end of it all. It’s fast, furious and nonstop (and should probably be sponsored by Red Bull).

Registration is limited. You can register on its site and check out some of the cool projects being proposed for this year. They include an International Space Station Notify Globe, Hacking your Genome, Geoscience Hardware Hacks and more. Have you got a great science idea to hack on? Contribute it to the Science Hack Day wiki!
