Totally agree with Booooooom here, these visualizations are stunning!
In honour of last night’s supermoon I found some moon-related visual inspiration. The January 1st moon was actually the second of three consecutive supermoons — the first was on December 3rd, and the next one will occur January 31st. NASA is calling these a supermoon trilogy (yes, I like space). Anyway, these images are all from the Geologic Atlas of the Moon on the Lunar and Planetary Institute website; I love the colours and the way the data has been visualized.
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.
