As I watched the Falcon 9 Heavy launch today just before liftoff I heard
the usual
words...... And now the onboard computer has taken control of the rocket.
It got
me wondering about the type of computer being used. What type of bus, how
boards being used, all the connections for sensors, valves, monitoring.
What are
they using as a main processor. Did they design it from the ground up or
use a
model from earlier rocket launches and modify it.
