When it comes to embedded systems, spaceship control, and real-time applications, the aerospace industry and NASA rely heavily on C and C++. These languages provide for precise, low-level command and exceptional efficiency.
For many years, NASA depends on the programming language FORTRAN for its scientific and numerical computing needs, particularly in domains such as computational fluid dynamics and astrophysics.
At NASA, Java is commonly used in ground-based applications, mission control systems, and satellite software. It is platform independent, making it appropriate for cross-platform applications.
