Beyond Cloud development, Java is already the #1 platform for Deep-Space development!
One of the coolest JavaOne demo from NASA scientist’s Sean Phillips demonstrating a JavaFX 3D app for visualizing deep-space probe interplanetary trajectory exploration and planet gravitational force gradients. “Millions of data points and planet trajectories. Java and JavaFX is awesome”. “If there is water on a planet, there is life”.
Java will help find extraterrestrial life :-)
