This issue we look beyond the confines of our small planet into the great cosmos beyond. We discover makers building their own satellites, the hackers providing ground support for space craft and find out how to keep an eye on the International Space Station.
Arduinos let you add programable control to your projects in a simple, standardised way. We take a look at how to get started, our favourite Arduino-compatible boards and addons and how to use the Arduino IoT Cloud to make simple, secure, internet-connected devices
Lights, Camera, Flames! We journey inside the underground bunker of explosive inventor Colin Furze to learn about his record-breaking makes. We also delve further into the world of electronics as we investigate filters, find the best motor controllers for your next project and more.
Maker hardware – there's so much around right now, but how do you pick the best bits for your projects? We've enlisted the help of Alex Glow, hardware nerd at Hackster to help. We also make a Midi cake, visit Al's Hack Shack, simulate circuits with TinkerCad and more.
