The Importing Finance Data - Calculating Basic Financial Statistics outputs to an error page for www.tsp.gov. What should I be seeing?

I’m having the exact same problem.

Same here. The website is blocked. I tried to run it in Jupyter Notebook to see if that would help but after the print(tsp_data)

It would be necessary by Codecademy to fix this by changing the api to something else that is actually accessible.
