Here are some of the technical specs of the Curiosity Rover:
- PowerPC 750 CPU clocked at 200 Mhz (A.K.A. PPC G3)
- 256MB of RAM
- 2GB flash storage (SSD)
- (17) 1600×1200 (2-megapixel) cameras
- VxWorks OS, this also powers the Apple Extreme Wireless Routers.
At least NASA is using hardware and software that is dependable. I know after 12 years, my PowerBook G3 still does what I need it to do.
