Experts Abrenskogo University of USA exploring the possibility of creating a blockchain service that will calculate the trajectory of satellites, allowing them to avoid collision with space debris. For further work in this area, NASA has provided developers a grant for $ 330 million.
University staff, a team headed by Professor gene Lithuania is going to build its own data center on the blockchain Ether. The developers are confident that their service will help humanity safer and more efficient to explore space, because despite all the successes of the people in this respect, the situation with space data collection are not ideal. Research satellites are on different orbits, manage because of the large distances is quite difficult, and the probability of collision with other space objects (e.g., debris) is quite high.
So the developers are going to operate the satellites using a specially developed for these purposes, the AI and technology of the distributed registry. Scientists believe that this method will be much more effective than those that exist at the moment.
