Astro Pi takes to the Sky!

Using the Raspberry Pi, an Astro Pi computer has been created! The Astro Pi has been launched into space this morning at 11:02 am with Briton Tim Peake. Taking the Astro Pi to the International Space Station (ISS) is one of the most exciting parts of his six month journey he mentioned. School aged students designing experiments for Tim to complete in space will give students the opportunity to use the Astro Pi to measure the environment of the ISS and the Earth’s gravitational pull. The Astro Pi experiments will be monitored from Earth and can be altered by the students at any time through sending messages to Tim Peake.
