‘They look alien’: NASA uses AI to design complex spacecraft parts

Posted by in categories: alien life, robotics/AI

NASA has turned to AI to help them develop, and build, more robust, lightweight components for its spacecraft of the future.

NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland has been using commercially available AI software to design specialized, bespoke parts, called “evolved structures,” for its missions. They also look a little “out of this world.”

“They look somewhat alien and weird,” Research Engineer Ryan McClelland said, “but once you see them in function, it makes sense.”
