Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone has looked at k3s onboard a satellite? I've heard of some projects, but looking for real-world use-cases and advice! Or tell me it's a totally crazy idea ­čśä

Let us know if you do it! I've heard of it being used in airplanes...

This was something I got off a quick google search. I also heard of this during a conference - https://links.imagerelay.com/cdn/3404/ql/7c5636da933a41358355e798dac72c1a/hypergiant-putting-managed-compute-power-in-space-with-k3s-ss.pdf

I came across that one too - makes me slightly more confident, but keen to hear of others experiences and what tools/services might be good to work alongside k3s.
For example: how to manage software updates and failsafe (revert to last known or factory settings, etc)

I do know it is used in submarines as well: https://calhoun.nps.edu/handle/10945/68688 & this paper had a deep dive on the implementation specifics
AFAIK the specific use case being air-gapped required the creation of a customized tool - ZARF.
