"K-10 - NASA's Linux Based Space Exploration Robot: K-10 was
created by the Intelligent Robotics Group (IRG) at NASA's Ames
Research Center, as part of a project to build exploration rovers
for future robotic missions to the moon and to Mars.
"K-10 runs Red Hat Linux, which NASA says was chosen for its
large user base and application compatibility. According to NASA,
"Linux's flexibility and scalability enable us to easily add,
remove, and extend devices with minimal difficulty."
