Blast off with The MagPi 47 Astro Pi special!

By Russell Barnes. Posted

Read about Tim Peake's life on the ISS as well as the results of the Astro Pi experiments in the latest MagPi, complete with an exclusive Tim Peake poster and Astro Pi mission patch!

We've been following Tim Peake's adventures in space closely in The MagPi for the last six months, especially all the excellent work he's been doing with the Astro Pis running code from school students across the UK. Tim returned to Earth a couple of weeks ago so we thought we'd celebrate in The MagPi 47 with a massive feature about his time in space, along with the results and future of Astro Pi…

The space celebration doesn't stop there, print copies of The MagPi 47 come with an exclusive Astro Pi mission patch and an exclusive Tim Peake Astro Pi poster!

 The results of what Tim, Ed, and Izzy have been up to for the past six months

The issue also has our usual range of excellent tutorials, from programming dinosaurs to creating motion-sensor games and optical illusions. We also have the hottest news on high-altitude balloons and how you can get involved sending a Pi to the edge of space, as well as the details on the next Pi Wars Pi-powered robot competition.

You can get your latest space-worthy issue instore from WH Smith, Tesco, Sainsburys, and Asda. It's also available in print on our online store. If you prefer digital, it's ready to download on the Android and iOS app.

Want to make sure you never miss an issue? Subscribe today and start with issue 47 to not only get the poster and mission patch but also a Pi Zero bundle featuring the new, camera-enabled Pi Zero and a cable bundle that includes the camera adapter.

This is not the end of Astro Pi, only the beginning.
