Space missions face unique challenges in planning, monitoring, and executing because of their complexity, the difficulty of anticipating problems once launched, and the high cost of failure. One technology field with the potential to solve this problem is reasoning technologies-that is, embedded intelligence. NASA has invested heavily in reasoning technologies for space missions, reaching an early zenith with the DS-1 Remote Agent experiment in 1998. However, acceptance of these technologies remains elusive.
