ASK YOUR QUESTIONS! Astro Pi will be installed on the International Space Station!.

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!


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
