“From Above” is a short film by SmugMug that features NASA astronaut Don Pettit discussing photography in space. Pettit was a prolific photographer while aboard the International Space Station during Expedition 6, Expedition 30, and Expedition 31. Pettit was also a mission specialist during the STS-126 mission of the space shuttle Endeavor.
Pettit was interviewed by SmugMug about the finer details of photography in microgravity, his favorite photo subjects, and how he hogged the bandwidth while on the ISS. The interview also includes some of Pettit’s stunning images taken from space.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
