The teams’ experiments had been selected dependent on their experiment concept, the high quality of their code, and the feasibility of their project – with unique focus paid to feedback included in their code. The selected applications have every single been analyzed on the floor for three several hours, in buy to assure that the experiments will run with out mistakes on board the ISS.

In the coming months, the experiments will be deployed to the ISS and overseen by an astronaut on board. The teams will then get the data for them to analyse and publish a small report that will be judged by ESA Education and Raspberry Pi Basis Astro Pi experts. 

Thanks to Coronavirus, the amount of time given to every single workforce to publish their report has been extended. Additional details will be supplied to every single workforce when they are despatched their experiment data. Soon after reviewing the entries, ESA and the Raspberry Pi Basis will decide on the 10 most effective reports and announce people successful teams of the problem who will get a unique prize!

ESA and the Raspberry Pi Basis would like to thank every person who has taken part in Mission Room Lab this 12 months – and unique congratulations to people teams who have obtained flight standing.
