It has been a pretty incredible year for all things space – New Horizons flyby of Pluto, Messenger’s exploration of Mercury, the total solar eclipse in April, the Dawn mission to Ceres and the Rosetta mission.
But you don’t need to leave the comforts of Earth to enjoy the beauty and wonder of the worlds beyond.
Here are 16 spectacular shots of space and the night sky taken by the talented Earth Capture community.
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.
