I suppose we'll find out how long it lasts.

It must have some shielding?

You're asking whether they prepared the Pi before launch to remove all traces of moisture?

Yes, but also by outgassing of plastic components, erosion and chemical reactions at the surface of the objective.

If they did, then it won't be a 'commercial grade' imho.

Sure - or they had really been great in selecting commercial parts that don't look like they have been left in the smoker over the weekend after mere hours in space.

Which of course, would be even more great - where can I buy some of those?

Pi 3B+ is out of stock, practically everywhere. Seriously? A lot of people still have a lot of concerns about the Pi 4, and the previous model goes out of production immediately?
This could actually be a problem.

Still you could also get comparable boards from other brands...

Yeah, but they'll have quirks we don't know yet, we're not sure whether our CD works with their OSes without hickups, we have to put them through environment testing... sigh.

Well, that makes sourcing really easy, if you exploit the quirks of certain boards...

Does anybody have an original SID chip around, BTW?

Ok, apparently not so bad, just some supply difficulties until January. Not sure why, but apparently there will be new stock next year.
Meanwhile, we found a batch to bridge the time until then. That means we can take time testing the Pi4, which is great.
