Mind-meld Brain Power is Best for Steering SPACESHIPS
(If a few of us focus hard enough we might capture/hijack a drone lol )

"TURNS out two heads really are better than one. Two people have successfully steered a virtual spacecraft by combining the power of their thoughts - and their efforts were far more accurate than one person acting alone. One day groups of people hooked up to brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) might work together to control complex robotic and telepresence systems, maybe even in space.

A BCI system records the brain's electrical activity using EEG signals, which are detected with electrodes attached to the scalp. Machine-learning software learns to recognise the patterns generated by each user as they think of a certain concept, such as "left" or "right". BCIs have helped people with disabilities to steer a wheelchair, for example.

Researchers are discovering, however, that they get better results in some tasks by combining the signals from multiple BCI users. Until now, this "collaborative BCI" technique has been used in simple pattern-recognition tasks, but a team at the University of Essex in the UK wanted to test it more rigorously."

Not a good idea. Minds wander which could cause a craft to fly erratically or crash. Manual and programmed flight is far superior.

Be Careful Aco, a statement like that might entice them to prosecute for thought crime.

The idea of two or multiple mind power makes me think of the borg and losing our self identity or spirit.

But, I guess they will always defy the impossible and not fear failure.
