September/October 1998 (vol. 13 no. 5)
pp. 36-44
AI practitioners are playing a critical role in developing NASA's next generation of flight software. The goal is spacecraft autonomy. If we achieve this key ingredient of space exploration's next phase, NASA can have many more space platforms operating at once, make more effective use of limited communications resources, and attempt bolder mission concepts involving direct investigation of remote environments.
