Python under the sea and in space

Discussion in 'Python' started by Jessica McKellar, May 7, 2014.

  1. Hi folks,

    I'm trying to determine the greatest depth (in the ocean or underground)
    and highest altitude at which Python code has been executed.

    Please note that I'm interested in where the code was executed, and not,
    say, where data that Python analyzed was acquired. I know for example that
    NASA has analyzed plenty of data from space in Python, but the analysis was
    done in labs here on Earth. :)

    Do you have some good candidates? Please let me know!

    I don't suppose "eight miles high" in the figurative sense counts?

  3. I'm afraid I don't know what "eight miles high" in the figurative sense
    means. There's at least two songs by that name, and a German movie, and I
    wonder whether you're thinking of the "mile high club", but other than
    that, I'm lost.

    In any case, O doubt that Jessica is asking in a figurative sense.

    I was referring to the Byrd's song "Eight Miles High"--purportedly a drug song.

    I have executed Python code (bottle web framework) on a Raspberry Pi at
    590m ASL when hill walking. The Pi provides a Wifi AP and web server,
    pages are viewed on a smartphone browser, data entered on the web pages
    gets sent to an Iridium satellite modem over a USB/serial link. It then
    gets downlinked and stuffed on the web.

    590m is not much but I only got it all working the other week and 590m
    is the biggest mountain I've been up since!
