A team of scientists at the Satellite Control Center in Xian, China, is developing artificial intelligence (AI) to help prevent potential accidents in space. space junk, according to information from the South China Morning Post from Hong Kong. Debris in near-Earth space can pose a danger of collision with spacecraft sent on missions around our planet.

The team’s idea is to use AI on their spaceships, thereby helping them reduce accidents during space missions.. To do this, the AI ​​algorithm will monitor the path astronauts travel through space, thereby avoiding garbage – more than 70 years since space travel, there are millions of debris that could cause serious accidents.

The development of AI is part of a project approved by the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology, which has received millions of investments to follow the success of the European Space Agency – European scientists have begun developing a similar application. several years ago, to avoid orbital debris.

“We will use our ten years of experience in space collision avoidance and debris reduction and bring together experts from all over the country to respond to China’s strategic needs. More specifically, we will explore AI paradigms in relation to multi-scale space debris monitoring, debris environment evolution, and space situational awareness.”

Artificial intelligence that avoids space junk

As the space industry continues to grow, debris could become a big problem in the future because it moves at high speeds and can therefore cause serious accidents in spacecraft. Scientists suggest that there are hundreds of millions of tiny fragments around the Earth, and that the 36,000 fragments are fragments of moons, each larger than 10 cm.

Because the debris situation is likely to get much worse before it starts to recover, some scientists are developing applications of artificial intelligence to reduce space crashes. China is also using artificial intelligence to develop constellations of smart satellites designed for use in scientific research.
