Maneesh Kumar Verma is the team leader and head of operations at Lunar Zero. He’s also a lead robotics at Stella Space Industries. In this conversation, Maneesh talks about the future of space exploration. In order to thoroughly explore places like Mars, a high level of autonomy must be given to the devices sent there. On top of that, the devices must be agile, plentiful, and inexpensive—compared to a Rover, for example. Maneesh calls these futuristic devices "artificial ants." He then gets into the nitty-gritty of the moon’s role as home base in the future of space exploration, diagnostic technologies, and pilot programs for future missions.
