Astro Pi: Raspberry Pi in Space!

How would you like the chance to have your Raspberry Pi project used on the International Space Station (ISS)? UK school students were recently given this opportunity, as part of a competition organized by the Raspberry Pi Foundation and several space and trade groups. Today, the winning experiments are running on a pair of enhanced Raspberry Pi computers -- dubbed Astro Pis -- on board the space station. British astronaut Tim Peake, who blasted off for the ISS aboard a Soyuz rocket in December 2015, is running the experiments for the students.
