The Weekly Stripe – 16.08.19
Last month it was the 50th Anniversary of landing on the moon, so this week our suggested reads look at space exploration and particularly at how AI has been used to enhance research.
Most notably, scientists have created the first ever AI simulation of the universe which is surprisingly accurate.
NASA is building robots which will be able to climb ice cliffs and rocks, in preparation for the Mars 2020 mission.
But what will architecture on Mars eventually look like? AI Spacefactory are fixed on being the first to build on the red planet and have developed the prototype ‘Marsha’ for its habitat. They are hoping to send robots to print 3D accommodation for the first researchers that arrive. Find out more here.
From robots being sent to build accomodation, to mining on Mars. Scientists are proposing an automated astroid mining system, which could feature a robot scooping rock from a comet and soar autonomously back to earth.
The James Webb telescope is likely to launch next year – but already it has been transformative in optic technology. It has been used to help improve human eyesight.
