a: Space voyage ~
b: long trip with roads and valleys

What: "A long-distance space voyage is like a road trip over "a substantial number of hills and valleys," explains Olds, now a project engineer at Analytical Mechanics Associates, Inc., in Hampton, Va. The differential evolution algorithm takes advantage of those ups and downs by helping the spacecraft make use of gravity's peaks and valleys."
