Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for Space Exploration
Space exploration is the on going discovery and exploration of celestial structures in outer space by means of
continuously evolving and flourishing space technology. The study of space is not only carried out by astronomers with
telescopes but also the space exploration of space is conducted both by unmanned drones and human spaceflight. Astronomy
is said to be the observation of objects in space with an authentic and definitive history, but the 20th century led to the
development of huge and comparatively efficient rockets which transformed physical space exploration into reality. Common
hypothesis for exploring space includes advance scientific research, uniting the nations, ensuring survival of humanity and
developing military and deliberate advantages against other countries. Space exploration has often been used as a proxy
competition for geopolitical rivalries among countries such as the Cold War. This paper content deals with the role of
unmanned aerial vehicles on earth and the future directions for the use of UAVs in space for exploration and observation
purpose. The first half of the paper will deal with a brief study of UAVs and their role in various fields and the second half with
the advancements that can be made in order to achieve accomplishment of tasks with no risk.
