Hello Joel,

space missions are always a great example for the widespread use of
RTEMS (in that case in terms of kilometres). So is there any reason that
would prevent this probe to be added to the list in the RTEMS wiki:

I can add it if you want. I just wanted to make sure that it wouldn't be
a problem before doing so.

Do you have any more (publicly available) details about where RTEMS is
used in that probe?

Best regards
