    Soft-robotic space exploration
    June 24, 2016

    In this video the gaits and the morphology of evolved soft-robots space explorers is presented. Both the gaits and the morphology of the soft-robots is evolved simultaneously through a neuroevolutionary algorithm (NEAT). Novelty-search and traditional fitness-based search are used through the evolution. Both methods succeed in terms of the efficiency of the evolved soft-robot explorers. In novelty-search surprising soft-robot morphologies are evolved and a vast diversity of locomotion strategies is observed.

    Human spaceflight and robotic exploration future

    Published on Jun 29, 2017

    ESA’s vision for human spaceflight and robotic exploration is part of humanity’s road to the stars. Exploring is about visiting new places and coming back with new experiences and knowledge to help us on Earth.

    Our strategy includes three destinations where humans will work with robots to gather new knowledge: low-Earth orbit on the International Space Station, the Moon – our closest neighbour, and our third destination Mars.

    The exploration programme includes Europe’s service module for NASA’s Orion spacecraft around the Moon, a landing on the Moon with Roscomos’ Luna lander and ESA’s Exomars rover on Mars.

    A deep-space gateway farther afield than the International Space Station is considered as a springboard for exploration beyond the Moon.

    Oumuamua (1I/2017 U1) - First Interstellar Asteroid

    Published on Nov 20, 2017

    In October 2017, an object moving rapidly through the Solar System was observed by Pan-STARRS 1 (discovery image, 19 October 2017), Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (22 October 2017) and various other telescopes. It appears to be a dark, reddish, highly-elongated rocky or high-metal-content object. Astronomers calculated it is around 800 metres long and has a mean radius of around 104 metres. The orbit calculations revealed it did not originate from inside the Solar System, instead Oumuamua is the first interstellar asteroid discovered.

    AI finds new Kepler planets

    Published on Dec 14, 2017

    A neural network built by an astronomer and a Google software engineer was trained to spot patterns caused by planets, and it found a pair of surprise worlds in two separate star systems.

    Article "MIT space hotel wins NASA graduate design competition"
    Module would serve as a commercially owned space station, featuring a luxury hotel as the primary anchor tenant and NASA as a temporary co-anchor tenant.

    What's needed in space robots? Offworld episode 8: WALL-E

    Published on Jun 25, 2018

    This week on Offworld, we revisit the classic Pixar film WALL-E, and chat with roboticists from NASA and Softbank Robotics about the development of robots for use in space. What about the portrayal of space robots in WALL-E did we like, and what would apply to the kind of robots that would work alongside humans in space?
