An Astronaut’s Guide to Optimism (video) by @cmdr_hadfield
Our world is not as bad a place as we often feel it to be. It is easy to look to the future and lament how far there is left to go, but sometimes it is helpful to stop and reflect on just how far we’ve come. This New Years, my resolution is to help make our world a better place. What’s yours?
Also, if you haven’t seen it before – check out David Bowie’s Space Oddity, recorded by Commander Chris Hadfield on board the International Space Station.
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.
