The EVA's explorer

Here you can find a work-in-progress data science project on Extra-vehicular Activity from a NASA dataset source: https://data.nasa.gov/Raw-Data/Extra-vehicular-Activity-EVA-US-and-Russia/9kcy-zwvn

I started this project during the Open Source Saturday in Turin, and as the data set needed to be prepared for the exploration, someone suggested me to create a separated script so other people could just play with the clean data set. You can find as eva-dataset_cleaner.py I really thank you the group for the support and help.

Updates: both the cleaner and the exploration are work-in-progress, I'm continuing experimenting on the Jupyter notebook added

Further info
