Use this case to build your own AstroPi patterned very closely on the one currently running experiments on the International Space Station. Made in the US from machined and anodized aluminum, this case looks and feels just like the flight units, and maybe just a bit better.
Choose clear aluminum luster or jet-black finish.
Coming soon: Optional cosmic images make your AstroPi a true showpiece.

What is an AstroPi?
Astro Pi is a Raspberry Pi-based computer assembly developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation (RPF), in collaboration with the UK Space Agency and the European Space Agency (ESA).
When coded, the Astro Pi computers are equipped with sensors and gadgets that can run a variety of scientific experiments. This set of sensors is called ‘Sense HAT’ (that stands for ‘Hardware Attached on Top’). The Sense HAT can be purchase from a number of sources.
The Sense HAT board was specially created for the Astro Pi competition. The board gives Astro Pi the ability to ‘sense’ and make many kinds of measurements, from temperature to movement, and to output information using a special display – an 8×8 LED matrix. The Astro Pis are also equipped with a joystick and buttons – just like a videogame console!
