Where are Raspberry Pi’s used?

The Raspberry Pi has won hearts all across the globe, from astronauts to hobbyists. In fact, right now, there are two Raspberry Pi’s orbiting the earth, conducting experiments aboard the International Space Station. British astronaut Tim Peake is heading the Astro Pi project, challenging UK school students to write code for experiments that he can perform in space.

Back on earth, a team of computer engineers at the University of Southampton put together 64 Raspberry Pis to build their own supercomputer! Each Pi has a 16GB memory card, making it a 1TB supercomputer. It’s like putting together a LEGO set, the makers say, and is an ideal Pi project for schools.
