Goddard Showcase – Applying Research in Artificial Intelligence for Spacecraft Resilience (RAISR) to Distributed Spacecraft Missions (DSM)

To enable the demand for scientific discovery through deep space exploration, missions need to be able to travel further and operate more efficiently than ever before. To achieve full mission autonomy, intelligent onboard fault diagnosis methods must be developed, with special consideration of anomalous faults. To this end, we present the work encompassed by project…

Discovery and Control of 2D Magnets – Relevant to NASA?

Magnetism, one of the most fundamental physical properties, has revolutionized significant technologies such as data storage and biomedical imaging, and continues to bring forth new phenomena in emergent materials at reduced dimensions. The recently discovered magnetic 2D van der Waals materials provide ideal platforms to enable the atomic-thin, flexible, lightweight magneto-optical and magnetoelectric devices. Though…

Exploranation – from the inside of mummies to planets, stars and galaxies

This talk will take its starting point in the on-going convergence of exploratory and explanatory visualization paradigms into “Exploranation”.  Based on the general availability of processing power, access to data and ever improving visualization methods, explanatory visualization can be data driven and fully interactive. This leads to a paradigm shift in visual learning and communication,…
