Going to the edge of space safely, with OpenStratos and Rust


OpenStratos is a small project to create all the software and put together all the hardware needed to send probes to the stratosphere. The original version of the software was written in C++, and I’m now porting it to Rust. I just published the first article on how I’m doing the port, with a complete explanation of the project and a small tutorial on how I implemented the state machine that will power its logic.


Considering how big of a deal it is if there is a bug in such a program… excellent idea to write it in Rust!!
