About Episode 128

In the world of ISAM (in-space servicing, assembly, and manufacturing) what should we use humans for and what should we use robotics for?  What have we learned from decades of their partnership and what can we bring forward into the future? Do we always need humans-in-the-loop? In this episode experts Martha Hess and Jerry Miller from the Aerospace Corporation’s Human Exploration & Space Flight Division discuss these questions and more.
