Dennis created the C programming language and with Ken Thompson and co, the Unix operating system back in 1969.
What they created at the time became the template of many Unix and Unix-like operating systems running today.
Let me tell you something fascinating about this guy.
The programming language that he created? It’s everywhere in Unix and throughout the family.
And the real kicker? It is being used right now in the Mars Curiosity Rover, some 34.8 million miles away from Earth.
