A $330,000 NASA autonomous spacecraft will be able to make decisions without human intervention by using blockchain technology. This means that the spacecraft could be able to dodge space debris at a distant planet or moon, faster than a human on earth could help out the far-away probe.
The research project is in its early stages, it would be especially useful in deep-space environments, where spacecraft communicating back to Earth must currently wait for hours for a response. Instead, this technology would work to enable the spacecraft to perform tasks using blockchain technology.
