The Rise and Fall of Lisp at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Created by ericlavigne on: Sat, 14 Jan 2006 01:37:00 GMT, Last modification: Sat, 14 Jan 2006 01:37:00 GMT

This is the story of the rise and fall of Lisp at the Jet Propulsion Lab as told from Erann Gat's personal (and highly biased) point of view. He discusses Lisp's contributions to NASA's mission, why it was so suitable for space exploration tasks, and why after more than a decade of high performance it was discarded in favor of C++.
