I feel relieved that if I’m ever bumming around Pluto, that I can drop in for a nostalgic game of Crash Bandicoot.

But seriously, there’s a 16year lag in space technology … I’m curious about the testing requirements for these space chips …

Can Crash Bandicoot run at only 12Mhz?

By the time I make it to Pluto, I’ll need it to run at 1/3 the speed …

Wow that’s amazing when you think about it.

Makes you wonder what sort of stuff NASA are using at present.

Wauw, … hardware from the early 90’s is still used in future space missions !!!

Doesn’t surprise me THAT much though!!

I don’t know the real story behind it or if its genuine or not, but back in the ps day’s, there had been rumors that the psOne chip wos used to build nuclear guided missiles o_0 !!
