Q Academy’s Manny Mandrusiak, Executive Director, and Leaoni Webb, Education Director provide a warm welcome and all the essentials for our Saturday morning gatherings. Thank you for being there Manny and Leaoni. Here’s a little something in appreciation of your hospitality.
Two augmented Raspberry Pi computers (called Astro Pis) are being flown to the International Space Station (ISS) as part of British ESA Astronaut Tim Peake’s mission. They are both equipped with the mighty Sense HAT that can measure the environment inside the station, detect how it’s moving through space, and pick up the Earth’s magnetic field. Each Astro Pi is also equipped with a different kind of camera; one has an infra-red camera and the other has a standard visible spectrum camera.
