NASA to test lasers for Earth to Moon broadband communication


Normally, communication from Earth to space and back again is handled by radio frequency (RF) signals. However, as our exploration of space expands, there is an increasing need for communication that is faster, more reliable, and capable of handling more data. Enter NASA's Lunar Laser Communication Demonstration (LLCD), which the agency anticipates will provide evidence that two-way communication between Earth and space is possible by using lasers.

Not only does NASA hope to prove such communication is possible, but it also expects that this technology will be able to extend the range of communication, as well as allow for more data to travel at a faster rate.
