Computers in space have been a frequent theme in science fiction in both film and books.  They have taken on roles from villains (like HAL and Skynet) to heroes (like Data and the computers in The Martian).  The reality of space computers are just as interesting as their fictional counterparts, with some famous examples being the computers onboard NASA probes or the computers in satellites used for the modern telecommunications and GPS.  Computers in space must survive in an environment that is significantly more challenging than on Earth.  This panel will compare the reality of computers in space to the fiction, with experts from the industry to talk about what it takes to build a computer that can survive launch, temperature extremes, and even radiation.
