A special piece of equipment we laser engraved is on-board the International Space Station and is part of British ESA Astronaut Tim Peake’s latest mission.

We were instructed by Raspberry Pi to laser engrave the fine details on two augmented Raspberry Pi computers known as Astro Pi. Whilst on board the International Space Station, Tim will use the two computers to run experiments using the board’s sensors.

This was a brilliant project to be able to put our name to and we’re excited to watch how Tim’s mission progresses. The overall competition and process of developing the games for Astro Pi connected STEM and schools brilliantly and we’re really proud to have played our part.
