Meet the Experts: Space for the future


Professionals in the space sector don’t try to predict the future, but a dedicated team prepares for it. The Advanced Concepts Team (ACT) is ESA’s multidisciplinary team of future concepts researchers that explore solutions to potential problems in space many decades from now. Young Graduate Trainee Belinda Rich works on Advanced Materials for Space Habitats and discusses the ACT’s work in this area as well as in artificial intelligence, fundamental physics, neuroscience, energy systems, mission analysis and more.

  1. ESA …gostei do modo divertido esta expert!! As vezes obtêm-se respostas em coisas simples!! A destacar a evolução robótica onde decisões programadas construídas e dotadas de mecanismos cibernéticos para construir bases na Lua sem humanos… Até um simples cristal pode fazer num lápis, tal como os átomos de modo preciso é ordenado tudo está interligado como "tijolos" isto para evidenciar como outros casos da ciencia é outras paralelas poderão interligar-se e intervir agora na Terra e no Espaço!! Fantástico…

    I'm only curious and have no axe to grind, but I found this overview of ACT interesting and the presentation was, I thought, very good.
