Subject Re: Call for Engagement: Open Source in Aerospace Workshop Fed 29th - March 3rd, 2016
Date Sun, 27 Sep 2015 07:15:39 GMT
It's great to see so many serious scientific/aerospace applications that
Apache projects are being used for.

Random question: does anyone have a list, or even rough number, of how
many satellites/rockets out in space are currently running software
that includes code from an Apache project?  Or, where is the furthest
away satellite that includes code from an Apache project?

It's *really* cool to think about how Apache projects are both helping
people on Earth, but also scientists exploring the universe!
