The growing use of artificial intelligence (AI) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in mission operations and other areas of the space program is discussed. Mission operations is furthest along, two systems having begun operation in parallel with existing methods in time for Voyager 2's Neptune encounter in August 1989. One is called Sharp (spacecraft health automated reasoning prototype) and the other is called Marvel (monitor/analyzer of real-time Voyager engineering link). Both systems are described, focusing on the use of AI. Research on other applications of AI in space, in the areas of resource scheduling, scientific data analysis, sensor monitoring, and robotics, is examined.<>
