Dave Akerman will once again be using the Raspberry Pi in a pair of balloon launches that will take place at 8am on Friday in time for the solar eclipse due to occur in the UK around 9.30am. The two launches, which will take place at Leicester race course, will use A+s together with Dave’s Pi in the Sky+ boards to send back images from above any cloud cover there happens to be. You can follow the launch in several ways:
- By viewing the online map. Watch out for KRYTEN/RIMMER and MARVIN/ZAPHOD
- By viewing the live images being transmitted and received.
- By watching the BBC Stargazing programme on BBC1.
