Mission Space Lab: Must code print text to the LED matrix?

Thu Feb 01, 2018 7:20 am

I'm working for Mission Space Lab. Currently, the program displays a red, green, or blue color every second to the LED matrix. Is this OK, or the program must print data ind text to the LED matrix?

Yes that's enough. It just had to be enough to convince the crew that the Astro Pi hasn't crashed or become frozen.
If they think it has they call down to ground to ask for someone to check it remotely.

Also, if you can - avoid the colour red. As the crew are trained to spot and investigate any red lights =)
