Meet team behind the mini Raspberry Pi–powered ISS

Reading Time: 6 minutes Quite possibly the coolest thing we saw Raspberry Pi powering last year was ISS Mimic, a mini version of the International Space Station (ISS). We wanted to learn more about the brains that dreamt up ISS Mimic, which uses data from the ISS to mirror exactly what the real thing is doing in orbit. The […]

ISS Mimic: A Raspberry Pi-powered International Space Station model that syncs with the real thing

Reading Time: 7 minutes A group of us NASA engineers work on the International Space Station (ISS) for our day-jobs but craved something more tangible than computer models and data curves to share with the world. So, in our free time, we built ISS Mimic. It’s still in the works, but we are publishing now to celebrate 20 years […]
