80-year-old Larry Zottarelli is retiring from NASA next year, and he is the last original Voyager probe engineer, and the Voyager probes are still in constant contact with Earth, until their onboard radioisotope thermoelectric generators no longer function, perhaps in the 2020's

Launched in 1977, the two Voyager crafts rely on mid-1970s hardware controlled by purpose-built General Electric interrupt-driven processors, with a whooping 64KB of memory

If you can program in ASM (almost everyone here can) and also Fortran, why not giving NASA a call?

Why use assembly when you can code an app for that in Java and use the most unstable and vulnerable mobile OS there is.
