NASA takes Ethereum to the Moon

The NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) cooperated with the University of Akron in order to initiate a new research program implementing Ethereum-based blockchain technology for the purposes of space communication and navigation.

As comes from the official UA (University of Akron) website, a faculty member from their Electrical and Computer Engineering department, Jin Kocsis, started a research, which “will exploit (the power of) Ethereum-based blockchain technology to develop a decentralized, secure, and cognitive networking and computing infrastructure for deep space exploration.”

Hope this project will become strong case of blockchain implementation within scientific and industrial domains technologies.
