NASA will use the blockchain for spacecraft control

NASA is going to launch a new project, for which use the Ethereum blockchain. With its help scientists will be able to automate the operation of spacecraft and to protect them from collision with space debris.

The project is supervised by Professor Jin Wei Kocsis who owns knowledge in computer technology. For a project provided a grant for 330 thousand dollars that will use within three years.

Kocsis with the team planning to develop a computational cognitive structure that can make the spacecraft easier. Also, it should simplify the work of scientists on Earth.

The system is the blockchain will help the spacecraft to avoid the debris that the collision could severely damage equipment.

What version of Ethereum will be used for the project is still unknown.
