HacDC got a big box of goodies, including Raspberry Pi 2s, SenseHATs, Arduinos, microcontrollers, breadboards, a soldering iron and more from Newark element 14 (www.newark.com). The before and after difference is clear: a business meeting of hackers disturbed from their ground state to their +1 excited state. Thanks Newark!

From Wikipedia: Kerbal Space Program is “a space flight simulator … [in which] players control an aerospace program, build and fly spacecraft or aircraft under physics simulation, and explore celestial bodies with characters called kerbals.”
