A great post on WebUrbanist covering monuments to the space race in both the USA and the USSR. These monuments are only partly about the astronauts and cosmonauts. They’re also testaments to the technology that put them up there, and the society which embraced that technology and made it happen. “We are what we celebrate”, indeed.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
