Rust is a systems language and therefore must give you raw access to memory. It does this (as in C++) via pointers. Pointers are one area where Rust and C++ are very different, both in syntax and semantics. Rust enforces memory safety by type checking pointers. That is one of its major advantages over other languages. Although the type system is a bit complex, you get memory safety and bare-metal performance in return.
