Students compete for a chance to have their Raspberry Pi code run in space

British ESA astronaut Tim Peake is heading to the International Space Station for six months, and he’s taking two Raspberry Pi computers with him! As part of the mission’s education outreach program, children in UK schools will get the chance to write code to run their own applications in space. The Pis will each have a specially made sensor board attached in order to access data on the space station’s atmosphere.
