Hi,

<http://science.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=03/02/19/1731245>:
Slimbob writes "About 2 years ago an Ariane 5 rocket malfunctioned and
left a very expensive Artemis satellite in an unusable orbit. Well, over
the course of 18 months, the European Space Agency actually managed to
push the satellite into a usable orbit using measly 15mN ion thrusters!
They managed the feat by reprogramming about 20% of the original control
software and uplinking the patches to the satellite! See the ESA press
release . Achievements include the first first major reprogramming of a
telecommunications satellite, the first orbital transfer to
geostationary orbit using ion propulsion, and the longest ever
operational drift orbit."

ESA's Artemis satellite reaches geostationary orbit - from total loss to
full recovery

 From google, I found a link mentionning the use of Ada in some control
software:
<http://www.ssi.it/telecomm.htm>

Any teamer knows wether the thing was done in Ada?
Could someone forward this on comp.lang.ada (I can read but not post
right now)?
