Beagleboard has visited space!

I’m happy to announce that the Beagleboard has been in the stratosphere, above 99.9% of our atmosphere, at a whopping 36km up in space, and it still worked great. It was sending back live images to our university. The preliminary mission control page with the live images was here:

And there’s more info and stuff to come in the next couple of days :slight_smile:
