Over the past five decades, the space agency has been exploring spacecraft as a robot and, according to NPR, will be a new step to replace astronauts for robots.
In recent months, robots have managed to record the biggest discoveries, such as the robot that existed on Mars for several months and for which Emily Lakdawala was responsible.
According to Lakdawala, robots achieved what humans could not achieve: they traveled to the recently discovered planets, explored satellites and asteroids, and successfully achieved both and remained for months.
The success of robots to become an alternative to astronauts is due to their ability to withstand difficult conditions and the lack of food or drink for long periods, unlike astronauts, journeys require a lot of supplies.
Elkins Tanton, one of the leading astronauts, said robots, made entirely of metal, were the best solution to explore our entire solar system. "We plan to send them to expeditions because they will suffer conditions that humans can not afford," he said. "We will send the photos that we publish online for everyone. The people of the world in half hour to receive them so that everyone can see our great solar system."
The measure occurs when NASA decided to end the mission of Cassini to Saturn and replace its transmission by sending the probe to the planet's atmosphere where it was burned. "Human beings are back to Earth and robots go where humans can not go now," Liquadawala said.
