| ||How does the concurrency primitives in Rust compare to the ones in Go?|

|From what I read about the concurrency primitives in Rust, they seem to be more inspired by the actor model in languages such as Erlang (and Scala?) than Golangs "hardwired" channels.|
Is this notion correct?
At the same time it seems it has the counterparts of go-routines (lightweight tasks) and I have seen channels mentioned.
All in all, I would welcome a little elaboration on what are the differences between the concurrency primitives in the two languages.
