Researchers Transmit Wireless Broadband to the Moon

MIT and NASA researchers have demonstrated how wireless broadband can be transmitted to the moon using telescopes and a laser transmitter.

Using four separate telescopes at a ground terminal, the team was able to send an uplink signal to the moon with a laser transmitter. The data traveled from Earth to the moon, a distance of 384,633km, at a rate of 19.44mbps and downloaded data at a rate of 622mbps.
