Astro Pi Mission Zero is open!

Wed Nov 07, 2018 1:59 pm

Astro Pi Mission Zero is part of the 2018–2019 European Astro Pi Challenge, an ESA Education programme run in collaboration with us at Raspberry Pi.

In this challenge, students and young people get the chance to have their computer programs run in space on the International Space Station!

Students and young people will have until 20 March 2019 to form teams and write a simple program to display their personal message to the astronauts onboard. The Mission Zero activity can be completed in a couple of hours with just a computer and an internet connection. You don’t need any special equipment or prior coding skills, and all participants that follow the guidelines are guaranteed to have their programs run in space.

This is a great opportunity to do something different with your Code Club, either as an extension activity, or as an introduction to text-based programming.

Hi Scotty101, if you are accessing the guidelines from a school, there may be some filtering from a firewall that's causing problems.

Here is an alternative link for you to try: https://s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/astr ... 018-19.pdf
