• 'Out of this World' AI Impacts the Future of Space Tech

    Missions to space face a hostile environment with many challenges. On a mission to Mars, operators must contend with high communication latencies. Round-trip communication times between Mars and Earth range from 6.5 minutes to 44 minutes. In addition, the communication window between Earth and Mars is not always open. Every 2.1 years (Mars’ synodic period), the sun blocks communication between the planets for 14 days. Intelligent machines with the ability to process large amounts of data and make real-time decisions on their own would increase efficiencies of both manned and robotic missions by avoiding the need to send instructions across the long distances between planets.
