Traveling in space doesn’t always mean visiting a planet. Zero-gravity conditions in space provide opportunities to conduct experiments that cannot be done on Earth. The insights we gain through these experiments can improve not only what we do in space, but also how various processes are performed on Earth.
On Monday (July 5), astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) attempted to optimize glass manufacturing processes in space. He also used artificial intelligence.
NASA said such a study is likely to benefit “many Earth- and space-based industries.”
NASA Flight Engineer Kjell Lindgren installed the hardware for the Intelligent Glass Optics Experiment for operation inside the Microgravity Science Glovebox Tuesday afternoon, NASA said. Observations from the probe could advance businesses such as communications, aerospace, medicine and astronomy “
In addition to the AI experiment, the astronauts studied bone loss due to space. Due to being in zero gravity for long periods of time, astronauts suffer a loss in bone mass.
“(NASA astronaut) Jessica Watkins begins her day with NASA flight engineer Bob Hines for an investigation that explores how weightlessness affects dexterous manipulation. The two have taken a flight inside the Columbus laboratory module. seated in a unique instrument to help scientists better understand how astronauts hold and manipulate objects in space. The insight could inform the design of intelligent spacecraft interfaces and provide a deeper understanding of the human nervous system, NASA said.
