    Spectacular videos captured the meteor lighting up the sky over Niagara Falls and the CN Tower in Toronto. The “less than one meter” object, named #C8FF042, turned into a fireball, the European Space Agency confirmed. “A three-foot object struck Niagara Falls in the sky and turned into a harmless fireball,” the agency wrote on social media Saturday morning. The sound of dynamite in the dead of night Residents of cities in southern Ontario, from Oakville to Hamilton, took to social media to report being woken up by the loud noise. There was an explosion nearby and the house shook for about 5 seconds,” one user wrote. According to the European Space Agency, this is the sixth time that global warning systems have detected an asteroid before impact. The last time a meteorite was spotted near Greenland in Hungary was in March. Good to know: Meteorites are fragments of asteroids. Their variable size is much smaller than that of comets or asteroids. After all, it is characteristic of them that they were able to pass through the atmosphere and land...
    Born out of the will of Luxembourg and the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Space Resources Innovation Center has set up its base in Luxembourg. Two of the start-ups that won a funding program launched this fall have decided to join forces around their base on the moon where spacecraft can land and take off. Historically, this move fits perfectly with ESA’s Artemis program, which includes the American Astroport, which specializes in fusing regolith to create moon rocks, and the Polish Fourpoint, which has focused on stand-alone engines. Together, they want to form an “LLP”. These are two of the five start-ups selected in the first group of Young Innovative Companies by Esric out of 33 candidates from 17 countries. Apparently, in the official press release, they are exactly the source of the core. “We are very pleased with our participation as the only American company selected to participate in this European project,” said Sam Jimenez, Space Architect and CEO of Astroport. “Through SSP, we learned about FourPoint and their combined capabilities. We look forward to leveraging our common...

    Destination Tuesday The goal of the entire program is to establish a permanent human presence on the Moon, which will lead to an essential phase: construction Deep Space Gateway (DSG)A space station capable of providing a habitable module around the MoonGroups stay for 42 days. In fact, NASA has already set its sights further on Mars. Deep space exploration, a manned mission to Mars, is a long-term goal. Emmanuel Jehin, astrophysicist at ULiège, confirms these indirect objectives produced by the Artemis mission: “This is clearly aimed at preparing a mission to Mars, as the 2040s and 2050s will require a return to the Moon first.“, he explains.”Returning to the Moon is important on a scientific level to better understand the origin of the Moon but also the origin of the Earth because the two are linked. There are more puzzles in this level. And then, in fact, technologically, a whole series of new processes could be demonstrated, especially the use of water in the form of ice in some craters of the moon in the southern hemisphere.

The European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut’s spacewalk, carried out at an altitude of 400 km, lasted six and a half hours in the company of Russian cosmonaut Oleg Artemiev. They were in charge of several repairs, notably the Russian science module Nauka and the new robot arm ERA (European Robotic Arm). Launched into orbit in July 2021 after several delays, the ERA robotic arm was installed on the ISS a few months ago. At 11 meters long, it can perform maintenance tasks and operate from inside or outside the station, and even from the ESA station on the...
    But what are we going to do on the moon? On Tuesday, France became the 20th country to join New wave of space exploration Quiet. By signing “Artemis Agreement”, He joins NASA’s U.S. program of the same name, which plans to fly to the moon in the next two or three years. The ultimate goals are to establish a sustainable human presence there, to create “safety zones” to protect extraterrestrial resources, or to create a springboard station for long-haul aircraft. Francis Rogart, head of solar exploration projects at the National Center for Space Research (CNES), explains. 20 minutes France’s role in this great space adventure. Why does France want to be a part of this project? Unlike the American Apollo missions that took place nearly fifty years ago, the Artemis missions offer a variety of collaborative opportunities. “Participation in the Artemis project is part of a larger international and ambitious program, which means giving ourselves the opportunity to send an astronaut to the moon through the European Space Agency (ESA),” says Francis Rogart, “because without NASA, there would be no...
    Make some space in your schedule to take a look at some brand new images of the sun released by the European Space Agency on Wednesday. The photos of the sun, taken by the ESA, include photos of a solar flare, the sun's south pole, the sun's magnetic activity, and a full view of the sun. Among the new photos is a solar activity in the sun nicknamed "the hedgehog" for having "a multitude of spikes of hot gas reaching out in all directions." "I was personally blown away by the quality and degree of details in these images," said Solar Orbiter Project scientist Daniel Muller. "By going three times closer, we can get the space resolution up by effect of three, and we see things that we haven't seen before, and that's of course the beauty of science, to explore the unexplored."

    Four astronauts are returning to Earth later after a six-month stay on the International Space Station. They have been working alongside Russian cosmonauts and became part of history when they hosted the first all-private crew to visit the orbiting outpost last month. The three NASA astronauts and one European climbed aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule shortly after 05:00 BST (00:00 ET) and left the space station just over an hour later. Raja Chari, Tom Marshburn, and Kayla Barron, as well German-born European Space Agency astronaut Matthias Maurer, will spend 23 hours flying home before splashing down off the coast of Florida at about 05:43 BST (00:43 ET) tomorrow (Friday). The SpaceX Crew Dragon will hit the Earth's atmosphere at more than 22 times the speed of sound, putting the astronauts through intense G-forces as the final portion of their descent begins.

    Russia has today announced it will end co-operation on the International Space station until Western-led sanctions over its Ukraine invasion are lifted.  The head of the country's space agency said it will no longer work with its partners, including NASA and the European Space Agency, on the groundbreaking orbiting laboratory.  The chief of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, revealed the move on Twitter and said he will submit a timetable for completion of current projects to the Kremlin. It follows weeks of threats, delays and cancelled projects from Roscosmos since a wave of sanctions were introduced against oligarchs linked to warring Russian President Vladimir Putin.  Most astronauts aboard the ISS currently return to Earth aboard Russian Soyuz flights, but Elon Musk's SpaceX Crew Dragon also now transports crew to the space station and has made four visits so far since its inaugural voyage in 2020.  The current crew is made up of three Americans (Kayla Barron, Thomas Marshburn, Raja Chari) three Russians (Oleg Artemyev, Denis Matveev, Sergey Korsakov) and one German (Matthias Maurer).  Rogozin previously said 'who would save the ISS?' if Russia were to withdraw from the...
    The European Space Agency has whittled down more than 23,000 aspiring astronaut applications to a shortlist of 1,391 who could potentially fly to space and the moon.  ESA is on the lookout for a new cohort of six space travellers who will spend time on the International Space Station and may one day land on the lunar surface. The agency hasn't said where in Europe the shortlisted candidates are from, but during the last round 1,900 of the 23,000 who applied were from the UK. The UK Space Agency confirmed there are British candidates among the shortlist, but couldn't say who they were, or how many had made it through to the next stage, where those remaining will undergo further testing. Of the successful next round candidates, 39 per cent were female and 61 per cent male, according to ESA, with 29 'parastronauts' out of 287 being shortlisted.  The call for applicants was made in March 2021, and ESA says it has taken longer than expected to whittle it down due to 'a high volume and caliber of applications'.   The...
    From ‘airship drones’ to stay in the stratosphere for months, to future European space rider space capsules, new materials for reusable rockets and lunar colonies will be passed on: these are just a few of the many research projects underway at the Italian Space Research Center (CIRA). ) Presented on the eve of National Space Day. “Space is one of the frontiers of humanity, and on a day like today, as we celebrate the past, we see those who created the conditions and many perspectives that lie ahead of us today,” said Giuseppe Morcelo, the leader of the Syracuse.

    Published: 02/01/2022 – 09:42 NASA announces that the lifespan of the International Space Station (ISS) has been extended back to 2030. The announcement should be verified first by a congressional budget vote, but it is already important for space science research. Launched in 1998, the International Space Station is now 20 years old, a strategic tool that has enabled it to make tremendous strides in various fields of technology. So ISS functions still run extensions to the delight of NASA researchers. Today, with a living space equivalent to a Boeing 747 weighing 419 tons and 100 meters long, the station was originally scheduled to cease operations in 2016, but will continue to operate again under the management of Joe Biden, who has decided to extend his lifespan. 2030. A total of sixteen countries are participating in the ISS, including Russia, Japan, several European countries and Canada. A team of six astronauts occupied the structure permanently with rotations for up to six months. An important geopolitical declaration Dedicated to research, this laboratory is the largest ever put into orbit,...
    A pair of satellites designed to observe the sun have captured video of the bright green Comet Leonard as it speeds past the Earth for the first time in 70,000 years.  Since its discovery in January this year, the comet has been fast approaching both the Sun and Earth, at nearly 160,000 miles per hour.  The ball of ice and dust is about half a mile wide, and was captured by the NASA Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory Aspacecraft (STEREO-A), and the European Space Agency (ESA) Solar Orbiter observatory. STEREO-A has been focused on following the green comet since November, and the team from NASA were able to produce a short animation from dozens of images. NASA published a 'difference image' to highlight 'outbursts' from the comet, caused when it throws off volatile material like gas and water ice - changing its brightness. The ESA spacecraft, a joint project with the US space agency, captured a video of the comet streaking across its field of view between December 17 and 19, 2021. But according to scientists, it may already be splitting...
    5 km long landslide on Mars Now, just as landslides cause damage on Earth, so do landslides on Mars. This landslide was recorded for the first time by the Exo-Mars Orbiter. Researchers at the Space Research Center say the landslide, which formed on Mars, was more than 5 km long. Images recorded by the European Space Agency’s Orbiter The European Space Agency (ESA) is currently sharing shocking photos of the landslide on Mars via Instagram and its social media pages.

    The European Space Agency (ESA) has asked for patience as it wades through more than 23,000 astronaut applications, including 1,979 from the UK. ESA says the number of applicants far exceeded even its most optimistic forecasts, describing it as a positive indication of the level of interest in space activities.  The agency is looking for six full time astronauts and up to 20 reservists that will travel to the International Space Station (ISS) and one day on to the NASA Lunar Gateway, in orbit around the moon. It had hoped to begin moving candidates on to the next stage by this point, but that has slipped until November due to the sheer volume of applicants. The final six will be announced by the end of 2022, early 2023, at which point they will begin their training with ESA for a future trip to the ISS or the moon.  The European Space Agency (ESA) has asked for patients as it wades through more than 23,000 astronaut applications, including 1,979 from the UK  ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet is currently on...
    In recent days, two space missions of the European Space Agency have flown over our neighboring (and infernal) planet Venus. The Solar Orbiter and BepiColombo they used the planet to perform a gravitational boost and continue your journey. Taking advantage of the unique moment, they collected all the possible data from Venus, some of this data has been translated into sounds. BepiColombo took advantage of the gravitational help of Venus a few days ago before leaving the planet and continuing with its journey. Gravitational aid causes objects to propel themselves considerably, something that BepiColombo was able to record thanks to the accelerometer you have on board. This accelerometer recorded the acceleration of the probe and after sending the data back to Earth, the engineers have translated it into sound frequencies so that we better understand what it was like. According to ESA engineers, the sound and the changes it undergoes can be attributed to the gravity of Venus and how it affected the probe. They also try to reflect with it the way in which BepiColombo collected the temperature changes...
    The European Space Agency's (ESA) BepiColombo spacecraft has made its close approach to Venus, coming just 340 miles from the surface of Earth's twin planet. BepiColombo, launched in partnership with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), arrived for its gravity assist on the way to Mercury just 33 hours after fellow ESA probe, the Solar Orbiter, made its close approach to Venus.   They were both using the gravitational pull of Venus to help them drop a little bit of orbital energy to reach their destinations at the centre of the solar system. The Mercury-bound BepiColombo spacecraft swung by Venus, flying 340 miles from the surface of the planet, at 15:52 BST on Tuesday, August 10.   It is on a seven year mission to study the structure and atmosphere of the innermost planet in the solar system and learn more about how it interacts with our star. JAXA tweeted: '[It] will not begin orbiting Mercury until the end of 2025, the spacecraft will make the first swing-by of Mercury this October. Stay tuned!' The double flyby offers ESA astronomers a chance...
    The European Space Agency's Solar Orbiter spacecraft has made its second flyby of Venus, just 33 hours before the BepiColombo craft makes its close approach.   They are both using the gravitational pull of Venus to help them drop a little bit of orbital energy to reach their destinations at the centre of the solar system. Solar Orbiter is on its way to study the polar regions of the sun in a bid to better understand its 11-year cycle, and made its approach at 05:42 BST, ESA said, coming within 4,967 of the planet.  ESA's New Norcia monitoring station in Australia lost contact with the solar orbit for six minutes, as expected. ESA tweeted: 'A few minutes ago, as the spacecraft swung behind the planet for its Venus Flyby, New Norcia station lost contact as expected.' Six minutes later, it regained contact, writing: 'New Norcia has you in sight again - we're back in contact!'  BepiColombo is heading to Mercury on a seven year mission to study the structure and atmosphere of the innermost planet in the solar system and makes...
    The European Space Agency (ESA) probe 'Solar Orbiter' had a chance encounter with the exploded Comet ATLAS, flying through its dusty tail. Doing so provided astronomers with a unique opportunity to study the remnants of a frozen object formed in the most distant regions of the solar system. ATLAS was discovered in December 2019 and initially it was suggested it would become one of the brightest comets visible to the naked eye, but it began to disintegrate in March 2020 as it made its closest approach to the sun.  It left its tail behind when it disintegrated, and in June 2020 the ESA Solar Orbiter passed through the tail of the comet while travelling to the sun to begin its mission. Studying data from the probe's instruments, Imperial College London experts found the sun's background magnetic field 'drapes' over the comet, carried by solar winds. They hope that as the probe, and the NASA Parker Solar Probe also studying the sun, will be able to explore the remnants of the comet in more detail in the coming years.  Hubble...
    The Sentinel 6 satellite will be the sentinel of the oceans of the European Earth observation network Copernicus. Christened Michael Freilich in honor of the oceanographer and former director of NASA’s Earth Observation Program, the first of two identical satellites that make up Sentinel 6 will go into orbit this Saturday from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. It will be launched into orbit by a Falcon 9 rocket from Elon Musk’s trendy space company, Space X.

    A little wood is set to go a long way. The European Space Agency is helping launch a four-inch square satellite (known as a CubeSat) made of coated plywood to test how it survives and fares in the harsh conditions of space. Known as WISA Woodsat, the 2.2-pound satellite designed by Arctic Astronautics will go to space on a Rocket Lab Electron rocket before the end of 2021. It will be monitored thanks to its two cameras, one of which has a selfie selfie stick to see how it deals with the space environment.  In addition to the two cameras, Woodsat will have pressure sensors to help monitor the pressure in its cavities, run an experiment to test 3D-printing cables in space and will be powered by nine small solar cells, Space.com reported.  Woodsat will also have an amateur radio payload 'allowing amateurs to relay radio signals and images around the globe,' the ESA explained.  'It's been a tight schedule but we welcomed the opportunity to contribute to Woodsat's payload in return for helping assess its suitability for flight,' Riccardo Rampini, heading...

    C ‘An ambitious project driven by the desire to make Europe a key player in the new lunar conquest. The European Space Agency plans to launch a galaxy of three to five satellites into orbit around the moon by ESA 2028. Earth’s natural satellite is enough to provide real telecommunications service and navigation service inspired by European GPS Galileo. With more than two dozen lunar missions in the pipeline, including the US Artemis project, the satellite system, known as Moonlight, will make it possible to reduce the cost of future European missions. People in other countries can use it for a fee. They no longer have to carry their own navigation and communication system, which is complicated and expensive.

    The European Space Agency (ESA) has launched an ambitious new project to build a sat-nav and communication satellite network in orbit around the moon. This new infrastructure could one day turn our natural satellite into the 'eighth continent' as humanity spreads its wings and builds cities on the lunar surface. ESA says the project, known as Moonlight, will support the Lunar Gateway space station, multiple agencies working on moon missions and human exploration. In what will be the world's first commercial service of its kind, a number of British firms have won contracts to investigate how it might work, worth over £2 million. 'We are entering a new phase - the systematic exploration of our "eighth continent", the Moon,' ESA's David Parker told BBC News.  'The Moon is a repository of 4.5 billion years of Solar System history, but we've hardly begun to unlock its secrets. And so Moonlight is something that we see as really exciting, as a necessary infrastructure to support sustained exploration.' No details on the final cost of the mission or when it might be ready...
    A massive slab of ice, roughly the shape of Manhattan but more than 70 times larger, has sheared off from Antarctica and floated into the Weddell Sea. It is now the largest iceberg in the world, the European Space Agency (ESA) said.  Newly-calved iceberg A-76 was captured by satellites by the Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission, ESA said Wednesday. The space agency said that the surface area of the iceberg is 1,668 square miles, measuring 106 miles long and 15 miles wide. The name of the iceberg refers to the region it first calved from. It is the 76th iceberg to be tracked by the U.S. National Ice Center.   For scale, the iceberg is larger than the state of Rhode Island. ESA notes that it is slightly larger than the Spanish island of Majorca.  Newly-calved iceberg A-76 was captured by satellites by the Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission. The European Space Agency compares its size to the Spanish island Majorca.  European Space Agency A-76 broke away from the western side of the Ronne Ice Shelf, one of the largest of Antarctica's ice...
    A huge 1,667 square mile block of ice has broken away from the Antarctic ice shelf, according to the European Space Agency, making it the world's largest iceberg. The splitting of an iceberg is known as 'calving' and this mammoth beast, slightly larger than Majorca, came away from the western side of the Ronne Ice Shelf. The iceberg, dubbed A-76, was spotted in images captured by the ESA Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission on May 14, and is now floating in the Weddell Sea in Antarctica.  It measures around 1,667 square miles in size, or 105 miles long by 15 miles wide – currently making it the largest iceberg in the world.  Experts from the British Antarctic Survey say this latest iceberg calving is a natural event that was expected, rather than something linked to climate change. A huge 1,406 square mile block of ice has broken away from the Antarctic ice shelf, according to the European Space Agency, making it the world's largest iceberg A-76 has snatched first place for largest berg in the world from the iceberg A-23A, which is...
    In-flight internet access for airline passengers may be provided via laser systems as early as the middle of next year, the European Space Agency has claimed.  The 'UltraAir' concept stems from a collaboration between satellite manufacturer Airbus and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research.  The laser-based tech could replace existing satcom radio-frequency systems, whose bands are experiencing bottlenecks as demand for satellite services grows. Ground-based tests of the system are expected to begin later this year in Germany, with the first in-flight trial, connecting down to Earth, expected for early-2022.  It is expected that UltraAir will ultimately be able to reach data transmission rates of several gigabits-per-second and will be nearly impossible to jam or intercept. This also makes the system good for military applications — such as relaying data collected by drones and linking aircraft systems to form an 'air combat cloud'. The narrow beam of laser communication which makes it hard to intercept also means that terminals can be lighter and less power-intensive than radio. UltraAir will also form part of the European Space Agency (ESA)'s 'ScyLight' programme, which...
    Astronauts could grow fish on the Moon using eggs transported from Earth and water that's on the lunar surface, scientists claim.  As part of a project called Lunar Hatch, experts are simulating the impact of the vibrations caused by a rocket launch on fertilised fish eggs. Eggs of two fish species – European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) and meagre (Argyrosomus regius) – survived stressors replicating the launch of Russian Soyuz spacecraft, they found.  Fish eggs could feasibly be transported to the Moon to set up a fish farm to help feed the lunar astronauts in the next couple of decades. Rearing fish on the Moon would provide astronauts with 'essential amino acids, omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin B12' – and an alternative to unappetising freeze-dried products.  NASA has committed to sending a man and woman to the moon again by 2024, while the European Space Agency (ESA) plans to build a moon village by 2030.  Pictured, the European bass (Dicentrarchus labrax). The Lunar Hatch programme's goal is to fertilize farmed fish eggs on Earth that would hatch upon arrival at the lunar...
    (CNN)The European Space Agency (ESA) is looking for new astronauts for the first time in 11 years.Applications open on March 31, and women are encouraged to apply as the agency seeks "to expand gender diversity in our ranks," according to a statement from the ESA published Monday."To go farther than we ever have before, we need to look wider than we ever have before," said ESA director general Jan Wörner in the statement. "This recruitment process is the first step and I look forward to watching the agency develop across all areas of space exploration and innovation, with our international partners, in the years to come."3 missions prepare to explore Mars and other space news to expect in 2021The agency is keen to receive applications from every part of society, according to David Parker, ESA director of human and robotic exploration.Read More"Diversity at ESA should not only address the origin, age, background or gender of our astronauts, but also perhaps physical disabilities," said Parker in the statement. "To make this dream a reality, alongside the astronaut recruitment I am launching...
    Hopkins and Clover, who arrived at the ISS in November, walked out of the traffic room of the Quest Station block into the open Wednesday. Both astronauts’ spaceships were converted to internal batteries, which always officially begin these missions, which was supposed to take place at 13:05 CET, but it happened before 12:28. Their work “out” finally lasted seven hours, until 19:24. While ascending, the pair completed cabling in the Columbus module and focused on installing the Bartolomeo platform antenna, the European Space Agency’s (ESA) largest contribution to the entire orbit laboratory. In addition, both NASA Americans had to build a module called the Cole-Ka terminal, which would enable high-speed communication with European ground stations. Columbus Is a science laboratory designed as part of the International Space Station. This is the largest contribution of the European Space Agency to the construction of the ISS. Columbus was built in Europe and flown by a heavy Airbus Beluga to the Kennedy Space Center in the United States. The ISS module was launched on February 7, 2008 using the Atlantis...
    Studies claim that there are approximately 128 million pieces scattered in low orbit. It seems that polluting the entire planet is not enough. Then, the human being transcends in this detestable practice and full of garbage the low orbit of the land. The space debris They went from being a theoretical problem to a situation that they have to reverse now. At least this is what one expert warns, because European satellites are in danger. The amount of space debris is so great that it is already compared to the immense islands of plastic that form in the oceans from the earth. In total, they account for approximately 128 million pieces of 1 millimeter. While they describe that there are other 34 thousand that exceed 10 centimeters. Daily Mail Review that are counted from the flakes of paintings that are detached from satellites, to the pieces of the rockets left in orbit. « It is not a theoretical threat but a reality, » he said. Ekaterini Kavvada, General Director of the European Commission of the IDefense and Space Industry. Consequences of...
    The European Space Agency said it will begin manufacturing the spacecraft that will take Ariel out of the atmosphere and be a space observatory. Space observatories grow as time progresses. Hubble is already close to closing operations and POT he already has his replacement. But there are so many mysteries to observe in the depths of the universe that a single telescope « out there » is not enough. That is why the THAT (European Space Agency), advances in plans Ariel, which will discover the formation of exoplanets. The Ariel mission came to light about two years ago. At that time the idea of ​​ESA to put an observatory in space was embodied. The purpose was, through atmospheric infrared remote sensing, to know what happens in more than 1,000 exoplanets, simultaneously. So, a few days ago they confirmed that the mission changed its status. They are in search of an industrial contractor, to build a spaceship. It should take Ariel into space in about nine years, approximately (2029). The exoplanets Ariel will see Specifically Ariel will measure...
    An aurora has been spotted surrounding a comet orbiting Jupiter - the first time the glowing emissions have been seen around a cosmic snowball.  Astronomers from the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) identified the shimmering phenomenon using instruments on the European Space Agency (ESA) Rosetta spacecraft.  Rosetta was the first space mission to place a lander on the surface of a comet, the first to orbit a comet nucleus and the first to follow it into the inner solar system.  On the Earth, auroras are formed when charged particles from the Sun follow the planet's magnetic field lines to the north and south poles where they strike atoms in the atmosphere and create a shimmering curtain of colourful lights in the sky.  Similar phenomena have been seen on planets and moons in our solar system and even around a distant star - this is the first time it has been spotted around a comet. It was caused by charged particles coming on solar winds and interacting with the coma - gas and dust - surrounding the nucleus of the comet, known...
    Artificial intelligence will help scientists search for signs of ancient life on Mars and other planets thanks to work by NASA scientists in training the system.  The European Space Agency (ESA) Rosalind Franklin 'ExoMars' rover will be the first to have the new AI system when it leaves for the Red Planet in 2022/2023. Allowing these intelligent systems to choose both what to analyse and what to tell us back on Earth will overcome severe limits on how information is transmitted over huge distances in the search for life from distant planets.  The system is being tested on Mars but has been designed to be used in future missions to the icy moons of Jupiter and Saturn where distance is more of an issue.  The European Space Agency (ESA) Rosalind Franklin 'ExoMars' rover will be the first to have the new AI system when it leaves for the Red Planet in 2022/2023 Presenting the work at the Goldschmidt Geochemistry conference, lead researcher Victoria Da Poian from NASA said this was a 'visionary step in space exploration'. Giving AI the...
