OSNews, Generic OSes As the first images of the Mars Curiosity lander start pouring in, let's talk about what operating system it runs. As I found out via Hacker News, the project runs on VxWorks, a very popular embedded operating system used for truly mission critical tasks. I'd love to know just how much work has gone into making it bug-free - this isn't the kind of environment where you want code to fail.

Sea Shepherd is cool. They are the non-gay version of Green Peace.

If someone would make a game based on Sea Shepherd it would be an aquatic themed FPS.
