Isaac Ingram’s winning music played by Tim Peake in space!

astropiIn December 2015, British ESA Astronaut Tim Peake blasted off to the International Space Station for Mission Principia and two Raspberry Pi computers were sent there for him to use. As part of his mission, he has been running experiments created and coded by school students, using the ‘AstroPi’ computers.

Isaac Ingram recently won the 11-13 years age group in the AstroPi Coding Challenge competition, coding a piece of electronic music using SonicPi software. There was a long list of judges including SonicPi creator Sam Aaron, members of synthpop giants OMD and film composer Ilan Eshkeri.

Today his piece of music, Final Frontier, was played on the AstroPi computer in the International Space Station for the first time, by Tim Peake!!
