Have you heard about the Raspberry Pi that’s headed to space? Astro Pi will be installed on the International Space Station and will run code written by British students. A few engineers from the team will be making an appearance on The Orbital Mechanics podcast to talk about the project. The Orbital Mechanics will be asking them about hardware design, what it took to pass the safety reviews, what kind of restrictions were placed on their payload and how the experiment will be integrated on Station.
If you have any questions for the engineers, especially questions about flying hardware in space, please send them to [email protected] before July 7, and tell them Adafruit sent you. Be sure to tune in to theorbitalmechanics.com to hear more about this amazing project; the interview should air on July 21!
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.
