QNX is powering Neptec’s Laser Camera System (LCS) on the space shuttle. This camera system will be used to inspect the Space Shuttle for damage before returning to earth. There’s a news release at the QNX web site.
QNX on NASA’s Return to Flight Mission

it’s interesting to see that both the most unstable OS ever (windows 9x) and the most stable one (QNX) are produced by commercial companies. open-source systems seems to stay in the middle.
stability has improved much with windows 2000, mac os x, and modern open source systems. stablility is no longer a unique selling point. except for such special things like spaceflight.
That’s right ladies and gentlemen. The flight was canceled at the last minute. QNX and NASA are grounded for the time being.
Can’t find a link to QNX’s API documentation to see how it looks like. Can you ?
