Your Next Adventure Awaits

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has relied on software since its inception in 1958. Early NASA missions like Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo ran on primitive software coded by hand. As missions became more complex, NASA pioneered rigorous software engineering practices for mission-critical systems. In the 1960s and 1970s, NASA spearheaded innovations like requirements analysis, risk management, code reviews, and formal verification that became industry best practices. As hardware and data systems advanced, NASA software kept pace, enabling key discoveries.  The software has been critical for NASA functions like engine control, navigation, satellite/probe operation, image analysis, data management, and spacecraft autonomy. Today NASA utilizes state-of-the-art software and continues to push boundaries with open-source platforms, AI, and cutting-edge development tools and methodologies. Software remains a key strategic asset in NASA's space exploration and aeronautics research.

Using AI to synthesize medical data
Note: This project is shared with HUNCH BIOHEALTH

The Challenge: The use of AI to synthesize medical data can be invaluable in space exploration. AI can take multiple medical inputs from various sources and provide a comprehensive analysis of the health of astronauts. This can help a medical officer accurately assess the risk of a mission and provide essential medical advice to help astronauts stay safe and healthy. AI can also be used to provide tailored medical advice based on the individual needs of astronauts, helping to ensure that they are provided with the best possible care in space.
