PROBA2, a mini-satellite operated by the European Space Agency, recorded today’s total solar eclipse from its vantage point in low earth orbit. The images were captured by the satellite’s SWAP imager, an instrument for recording extreme ultraviolet images of the sun. The total solar eclipse was also pretty impressive as seen from earth.
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.
