The particular aspect of the game we looked at was the city placement. Several experiments with different tunings of the Genetic Algorithm were performed. It was found that the performance of the AI(More)
NASA’s Lunar Laser Communication Demonstration (LLCD) has proved the capabilities of optical communication between the LADEE space craft orbiting the Moon and three complementary ground stations (NASA/MIT, JPL and ESA) on Earth. For ESA’s optical ground station on Tenerife, an innovative fibre coupled receiver unit has been developed. It comprises highly(More)
