Software to Mars

Seen via The Eternal Golden Braid (and indispendable read), an article on Spaceflight Avionics software development on the Pathfinder mission to Mars.

Having done something along the same lines myself - though FedSat wasn't separated by light-minutes - I can really appreciate his remote debugging remarks. That was an area we put a lot of effort into - capturing as much data as we could in case something was dodgy, so we could diagnose and fix or work around it.
