A robot looking at the reflection of a meteor in a puddle

The robot watches with dismay as an asteroid crashes into Earth, yet we can only see an unclear reflection of the event unfolding in the puddle. Unfortunately, current spacecraft technologies are not able to identify asteroids fast enough due to optical distortions. With the support of the European Space Agency, we are developing Artificial Intelligent algorithms for spacecraft systems to efficiently and precisely determine these threatening bodies.
