ESA Astro Pi students meet Tim Peake Uploaded by Raspberry Pi on 2018-06-26. A brief history of Astro Pi In 2014, Raspberry Pi Foundation partnered with the UK Space Agency and … Continue reading →
Before our beloved SpaceDave left the Raspberry Pi Foundation to join the ranks of the European Space Agency (ESA) — and no, we’re still not jealous *ahem* — he kindly drafted us one final blog post about the Astro Pi upgrades heading to the International Space Station today! So here it is. Enjoy! We are … Continue reading →
In September of last year, we launched our 2017/2018 Astro Pi challenge with our partners at the European Space Agency (ESA). Students from ESA membership and associate countries had the chance to design science experiments and write code to be run on one of our two Raspberry Pis on the International Space Station (ISS). Submissions … Continue reading →
Right now, 400km above the Earth aboard the International Space Station, are two very special Raspberry Pi computers. They were launched into space on 6 December 2015 and are, most assuredly, the farthest-travelled Raspberry Pi computers in existence. Each year they run experiments that school students create in the European Astro Pi Challenge. The European … Continue reading →
Every school year, we run the European Astro Pi challenge to find the next generation of space scientists who will program two space-hardened Raspberry Pi units, called Astro Pis, living aboard the International Space Station. Astro Pi Mission Zero The 2017–2018 challenge included the brand-new non-competitive Mission Zero, which guaranteed that participants could have their code … Continue reading →
Tim Rowledge produces and sells wonderful replicas of the cases which our Astro Pis live in aboard the International Space Station. Here is the story of how he came to do this. Over to you, Tim! When the Astro Pi case was first revealed a couple of years ago, the collective outpouring of ‘Squee!’ it … Continue reading →
Astro Pi is back! Today we’re excited to announce the 2017-18 European Astro Pi challenge in partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA). We are searching for the next generation of space scientists. Inspiring the next generation of space scientists Announcing the 2017-18 European Astro Pi challenge in partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA). It’s open to … Continue reading →
In 2015, The Raspberry Pi Foundation built two space-hardened Raspberry Pi units, or Astro Pis, to run student code on board the International Space Station (ISS). Astro Pi upgrades Each school year we run an Astro Pi challenge to find the next generation of space scientists to program them. After the students have their code run … Continue reading →
In October last year, with the European Space Agency and CNES, we launched the first ever European Astro Pi challenge. We asked students from all across Europe to write code for the flight of French ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet to the International Space Station (ISS) as part of the Proxima mission. The winners were announced back in … Continue reading →
Last year, we partnered with Trinket to develop a web-based emulator for the Sense HAT, the multipurpose add-on board for the Raspberry Pi. Today, we are proud to announce an exciting new upgrade to the emulator. We hope this will make it even easier for you to design amazing experiments with the Sense HAT! What’s new? … Continue reading →
