    I was thinking about this earlier today with my dad..how much forethought did they have when they designed it? Imagine all the software updates and tech improvement that has happened.
    My father's response was: "they had it 5 years before you did."
    Me: "even windows 10?"
    Dad "Fuck you, they use Mac!"

    I've always heard NASA people saying the computer systems in spacecraft are very old. Old as in they have tested it to the nth degree and then tested it some more so they know to handle problems as they arise. Same with software, more like win XP than win 10.

    I would say even older like Windows 95. NASA doesn't all the silly bells and whistles that the regular consumer wants, and the stack several simple together for redundancy also the chips are kind of slow, the shuttle was run with 386 processors because the radiation fucks up the densely built ones

    As the Juno spacecraft flew through the narrow gap between Jupiter's radiation belts and the planet during its first science flyby on August 27, 2016, a star camera used primarily for navigation collected the first image of Jupiter's ring taken from the inside looking out. The bright bands in the center of the image are the main ring of Jupiter's ring system. While taking the ring image, the star camera was viewing the constellation Orion. The bright star above the main ring is Betelgeuse, and Orion's belt can be seen in the lower right.
