ESA Mission Zero Python coding challenge Presentation by James M0JFP at Egham Raspberry Jam

James M0JFP presented Mission Zero, an opportunity to have your Python code run on the International Space station. He stepped through explaining what the Sense hat was and why it was developed and sent to the space station. He then worked through examples of code showing the Children how to display their names, take the temperature and some simple graphics.
