Astro Pi is the name of a small computer developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, in collaboration with the UK Space Agency and the European Space Agency (ESA).
There are two very special Astro Pi’s. Their names are Ed and Izzy, and they have been qualified for spaceflight. They are now onboard the International Space Station (ISS) for students to use.
During the European Astro Pi Challenge, Astro Pi Ed onboard the International Space Station (ISS) will be collecting a range of data using its sensors.
In this set of activities you will explore life conditions onboard the ISS and compare them with life conditions on Earth using the Sense HAT sensors to sense the space around you.
