Spacecraft control systems. Researchers working on an artificial intelligence control system for spacecraft and satellites. This system is called sysbrain, and uses natural language programming (NLP) such as sEnglish. It is being developed at the University of Southampton, UK, by a team that includes Professor Sandor Veres (left). Here, satellite models moving on a near-zero friction surface are being used to test the system. Photographed in 2011.
