General Development "I got interested in the Soviet space program and was interested to discover that the software on the Buran spacecraft circa 1988 was written in Prolog. Does anyone know what languages might have been used in earlier missions, especially the Mars PrOP-M rover missions of the early 1970s which were somewhat autonomous and could navigate obstacles?" Absolutely fascinating.

Thanks for the link. I read the whole pdf.

DRAKON has the kind of Soviet technological aesthetics I like. Simplest possible thing that robustly doest what you need.
