By Daniel Zo Blockchain, Ethereum, NASA Read Comments

So far, there hasn’t been much news regarding any involvement of NASA with blockchain technology, or digital currencies. However, things are about to change, as a research project that recently received funding from NASA, will be looking for ways to leverage Ethereum’s smart contracts, to help automate spacecraft manoeuvring and avoid space debris.

NASA, which is also co-running the research and development effort of the project, has mentioned that the development may revolutionize the search for deep space probes. To put things better into perspective, NASA is investing in a project that would use blockchain and smart contract technology to not only enhance space communications, but also to make navigation efforts safer and more efficient.
