A leading Caltech physicist has said that the future of space exploration lies with intelligent space probes.
There's no doubt that unmanned probes have provided a wealth of information about our solar system, many physicists believe that the future of space exploration will revolve around the development of spacecraft that can act on their own without needing human intervention.
Before the year 2020, scientists are expected to launch intelligent space robots that will venture out to explore the universe for us. "Robotic exploration probably will always be the trail blazer for human exploration of far space," says Wolfgang Fink, physicist and researcher at Caltech.
