NASA engineers using Autodesk design based on artificial intelligence, developed a new concept of a light interplanetary landing module, which looks like a spider.
The innovative design of the planettech presented has made it possible to achieve a significant reduction in mass, compared with previous similar devices for the study of other planets and satellites. It is assumed that the module will be made of titanium or aluminum and will help in the study of the moon of gas giants, on which there may be hidden oceans with alive organisms.
Space Spider consists of 3 parts. The first is an internal structure with a set of tools and equipment for the study of distant worlds. The second section is directly the main body installed on the third main element — moving supports in the form of an insect limb. The whole design is about 2.5 m in width and one meter in height.
Initially, the designers from Autodesk turned to experts from NASA to consult a new system, but in the course of work the Agency became interested in the project, and suggested jointly create a easier model for the study of the study. According to the developers, they were able to achieve a reduction in the mass of the planet to 35% compared with the existing options. The created aluminum design has a mass of less than 80 kg and is able to withstand the load from the inner equipment to 112 kg.

The US Space Agency considers the possibility of sending a spike-shaped planet to Saturn Saturn Enseladd. A unique design will allow the module to effectively move around the rocky surface and break through the ice to study the subsoil. Engineers say that the abbreviation of the mass will significantly reduce the cost of future research missions and set more sensors to collect scientific data.
Artificial intelligence helps save not only designers, but also television companies. Chinese information agency Xinhua presented a new lead news that
