I've heard this before and it does sound like the most epic hack in
the history of programming.
100 million miles
That looks like about 9 light minutes away, so about 18 minute
latency! It might be super epic, but doesn't sound super nice. :)
Recently there was a bit of a fuss when people discovered that the
Mars Ingenuity helicopter runs Python3. Now I wonder, if its
software ever crashes, will people be able to just launch the Python
REPL and debug it?
Qem, That is the thing about functional programming in general. Data is
the centerpiece. State is just data. Program is just data. Capture
data, feed it locally, and get results.
