What does the future in space hold? Listen to Seamus Tuohy from Draper Labs talk about everything from what it will take to turn a wrench in space to servicing the upcoming space tourist industry. Fiber optic gyros and sensors will help astronauts to make better decisions and enable the ability to land autonomously. He talks about a reusable spaceplane called Dream Chaser that will launch from a rocket, but come back on an airport runway. This kind of transport will support hotels in space that will be resupplied through a spacecraft that can repeat and keep flying the same route. Listen to Mr. Tuohy discuss autonomous systems, machine learning, and other technologies that will make travel to the moon and work on the moon safe and routine.
