The mainstream adoption of the digital assets and the underlying technology, the blockchain, has been one of the most important goals that the crypto industry has set.
A lot of important achievements have taken place in this direction, and the important moves continue.
NASA is planning to use a blockchain solution to explore Saturn’s moon
For instance, it’s been just revealed that NASA is now looking at a blockchain solution that could help power the space agency’s mission to the moon of Saturn – Titan.
NASA’s briefing notes that tech companies Orbit Logic and the Fraunhofer USA Center for Experimental Software Engineering have put forward a blockchain-based protocol.
It’s been revealed that this boosts communications in unhospitable space environments and it’s dubbed as the Space Communication Reconstruction and Mapping with Blockchain Ledgering or SCRAMBL.
SCRAMBL will use the DLT tech in order to store and propagate a leger that continues relevant data across network satellites.
“The ledger contains an inventory of established communication paths based on spacecraft-published connection state changes, but more importantly hosts events, states, objectives, and plans that constitute a Common Relevant Operating Picture (CROP) – key to enabling a space network’s coordination and overall awareness,” according to official notes.
NASA also explains that “When complemented with Orbit Logic’s Autonomous Planning System (APS) solution (already developed and proven on high-fidelity testbeds), SCRAMBL will allow the constellation as a whole to achieve greater overall system utility through agent-supported asset teaming strategies.”
It’s been also explained that the blockchain algorithm will allow a spacecraft to bypass interruptions in communications.
If one node encounters some kind of issues, the rest of them can adapt really quick and determine the most effective way to transmit a message.
