The First Helicopter to Fly on Mars is Running Linux

Post by heyted » Sun Feb 21, 2021 1:40 am

The autonomous helicopter that will attempt this flight is running a Linux OS, and the open-source F' software is partially Python.

"This is the first time we’ll be flying Linux on Mars. We’re actually running on a Linux operating system. The software framework that we’re using is one that we developed at JPL for cubesats and instruments, and we open-sourced it a few years ago."

The next model should have a 4K camera, and the video recording software should be _______?
