Project description

PROJECT WORDEN - Terminal Based Space Display

Pictured, the epynomous Alfred Worden (the only astronaut I had the privilege to meet in person)



Aggregate information from several Space-related APIs into a single, cohesive and (hopefully) cool-looking terminal based interface


pip3 install --user --upgrade worden (now, it actually works)

This will download the package, dependencies and a launch script.


worden (If your PATH includes the pip directories)


python3 -m worden
