  • Publisher: European Space Agency

A Physarum machine is a programmable amorphous biological computer experimentally implemented in plasmodium Physarum polycephalum. We overview a range of tasks solvable by Physarum machines and speculate on how the Physarum machines could be used in future space mission... View more
