Hi everyone

This week the Cygnus spacecraft safely delivered the Astro Pis to the International Space Station, and next week Tim Peake will join them.

Rachel’s DOTs boards used by Raspberry Pi at Maker Faires and other events are now available for sale at The Pi Hut, in conjunction with Bare Conductive.
