We love Arduino and we love space exploration. So we decided to combine them and let people run their own space experiments! Read more

Mission Patches, SDK and Community Updates
Mission Patches for Ardusat-2
Today is the day that Ardusat-2 gets released from the ISS. If anyone has an idea for a mission patch, we'd love to see it. Our favorite design will get a mission patch with their design!

Hi Everyone! We've made some great changes to the ArdusatSDK. Those updates include:
- Added Gyroscope library
- Modified Accelerometer library to be compatible with I2C
- Improved overall handling of I2C communication
Get the SDK: https://github.com/ArduSat/ArduSatSDK
Thanks to J.F. Omhover, there's also some great new tools for you to try out while you're working on your experiment. They include:
- AppStorage “emulators” : two libraries (SAT_AppStorageEMU, SAT_AppStorageEMUSD) to smoothly replace SAT_AppStorage during the development of your experiment, they divert all the output data to the Serial port or to a SD file
- SamplingLib : series sampling for data reduction
- DataLib : formatting scheme and decoder to send/read binary data from AppStorage
- HeatShrinkLib (experimental) : a library to compress data
- I2C Scanner (sketch) : an I2C scanner that scans for available sensors connected to your Arduino’s I2C port, and outputs a comprehensive list

3D Printed Ardusat
Finally, if you're a 3D printing aficionado, check out this thingiverse project to print your own Ardusat look-a-like (okay, it's a little more colorful than the real thing).
