Very interesting document about software complexity:

NASA Study on Flight Software Complexity

"Flight software is a kind of embedded real-time software, a field that has seen exponential growth since its inception. In some areas of NASA, flight software is growing by a factor of ten every ten years. Estimates for Orion’s primary flight software exceed one million lines of code."

...

"The newest fighter still under development, the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, will, according to one source, have 5.7 M lines of code."

(From Grady Booch's blog)
