API Endpoint doesn't exist

The API endpoint for these exercises doesn’t exist anymore. Makes it hard to actually learn from this. Also, could we get an explanation about what .content does? Is this some kind of keyword? Please clarify in the lesson itself.

I would recommend reporting these issues/feedback to Dataquest directly through the ? button in the Classroom in the top-right corner. They can then look into it accordingly.

I checked how .content works. Seems like it provides us with the details of what is returned throught the API request.
For example, when we send the query:

response = requests.get("http://api.open-notify.org/iss-now.json")
status_code
content = response.content

The value for content is
{\n “latitude”: 16.003181036664067, \n “longitude”: 47.101377252285204\n }, \n “message”: “success”, \n “timestamp”: 1441417752\n}
This seems like the location of the ISS at a certain point of time.
Could anyone validate this.
