The day in a Space Station astronaut's life starts a year before his or her mission (or increment, in NASA-ese), when the mission planning and scheduling begins. The mission controllers refine and review the mission plan until execution time, when they upload it to the Space Station as an onboard short-term plan (OSTP). This installment of the AI in Space department looks at the process NASA uses to plan and execute an astronaut's "day in the life". It examines new planning and scheduling technologies presented at the Third International NASA Workshop on Planning and Scheduling for Space and show how they might affect future Space Station astronauts.
