How much disk space can be used for SpaceLab Mission

Sat Feb 03, 2018 8:46 am


my students would like to record a picture of the earth every X second in order to be able to evaluate the rotation velocity of the earth.

How much space is available on the AstroPi Izzy for each experiment to store the images?

This would help us to optimise the frequency of the pictures.

Thanks a lot

Hi Stefano

Technically there is no limit providing you can justify the science requirement for the disk space. We have a ground control team who can remotely connect to the Astro Pi from ground and keep downloading output data to free up disk space. The micro SD cards we're using on the ISS are 32 GByte though.

Many thanks
