NASA to Test Linux Based Robots

This week in the Arizona desert, NASA will be testing a lunar rover called K-10, which features a Linux operating system. The rest of the command structure is based on an IBM Thinkpad, but it is interesting to see the use of an operating system which has triumphed the open source code movement finally getting its due from NASA. You can also watch the maneouvers performed by K-10 via an online webcam which I have posted.
