Quotes

...Machines: Teaching robots right from wrong, studies like those conducted by Winfield can be the basis of future, more complex robotics programming. "If we can get them to function well in environments when we don't know exactly all the circumstances they'll encounter, that's going to open up vast new applications for their use." — TJD, GMA News
"Wow, what a night! You get one shot with Mars orbit insertion and MAVEN nailed it tonight" project manager David Mitchell said, using the acronym given to the spacecraft, which is short for Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution
molecules in the planet's upper atmosphere, a process that scientists believe has been underway for eons.  "By learning the processes that are going on today we hope to extrapolate back and learn about the history of Mars" MAVEN scientist John Clarke, with Boston University, said in an interview on NASA Television
"By learning the processes that are going on today we hope"
