Autonomous Drones Could Track Down Meteorite Falls in the Future
Every day, our planet is bombarded with hundreds of pieces of natural space debris like chunks of comets or asteroids. Some of these rocks survive their journeys through the atmosphere and end up in remote areas or in the oceans, making the task of locating them extremely hard. But now, there’s a new tech that scientists can make use of that could be used to hunt them down.
To address that issue, a team of researchers from the University of California has published a new study in which they propose using drones and machine learning to perform automated searches for these alien rocks. So how would…
