The Raspberry Pi Astro Pi flight case is constructed from 6063 grade aluminium a standard for aerospace applications and devices and the Raspberry Pi mini PC is equipped with a LED matrix, joystick together with a quad of buttons with an adjacent pair.
While the face on the right side of the case is used to attach it to a Bogen arm “so that the Astro Pi can be held in place, for example if the crew want to aim the camera out of the cupola window” says the Raspberry Pi foundation.
