THAT is worth the price of an iPad! If you don't have a tablet, get to an Apple Store and load this on one of the demonstrators...you may walk out with one!

CONGRATULATIONS Damien. You deserve it so much and I see that Emily likes your imaging work also very much (as of EdTruthan also) : you are among the very few to have your Mars images able to be selected for TPS' Amateur Space Images by Emily... How nice ! Your work is an enlightement for TPS's site (and also for France : you are the very 1st Frenchman to give a testimony there). Cheers !
You deserve really wheel.gif wheel.gif wheel.gif wheel.gif wheel.gif wheel.gif

Believe it or not, this does relate to Curiosity and Curiosity's computers to be specific. I gather cpu scheduling algorithm's differ on Curiosty than they do on earth by commercial operating systems.
I speak primarily of Vax design...and believe me NASA has been a major Vax customer.

Process scheduling was done on a priority basis, Vax had 32 priorities, 0-15 was round-robin within priorities and 16-31 was real-time. Among the scheduled (0-15) priorities we employed round robin scheduling on a priority basis. I/O completion got a slight priority boost. There seems's to be no equivalent on spacecraft and I wonder how things are scheduled? The OS is bound to have a name? Scheduling algorithms have to be described someplace?
