    Can Space Robots Save Humanity?

    Artificial intelligence (AI) is developing at an incredible rate and is rapidly catching up with human intelligence (HI). From the development of single-purpose narrow artificial intelligence (ANI) to artificial general intelligence (AGI), intelligent robots that can think, act, and make decisions with or without humans on earth and beyond are soon to be a reality. As serious plans are made for more moon missions, asteroid mining, and space colonization, the arrival of intelligent space robots will be useful for not only gathering information about our universe but also doing tasks such as building spaces for human habitation beyond earth. There are visible indicators that for space exploration humans will rely on intelligent systems in many shapes, sizes, and structures.

    NASA to land first woman on moon as part of upcoming Artemis mission; looks to Mars next

    NASA announced that it plans to land the first female ever on the moon in 2024. According to NASA, it has been 45 years since U.S. astronauts set foot on the moon, but the upcoming Artemis mission aims to establish a sustainable human presence on the Moon by 2028 with the "first woman and the next man," greeting the lunar surface. During the original Apollo missions, multiple American male astronauts stepped foot on the Moon, the last occurring during the Apollo 17 in 1972.
