The American space agency NASA has succeeded in the experiment of receiving a signal through a laser that was sent from a distance of 10 million miles.۔
According to a statement issued by NASA, this message was sent through new laser technology and this technology will enable instant communication with spacecraft.
During NASA’s new Deep Space Optical Communications (DSOC) technology experiment, it was the first time that data could be sent far from the Moon by laser.
Right now, communication with spacecraft in space relies on radio signals that are sent to huge antennas on the ground.
This method is good but it is limited because sometimes it becomes impossible to send large files like HD photos and videos.
For this reason, NASA was working on DSOC, which ensures high-speed communications through lasers.
According to NASA, this technology will make data transfer 100 times faster.
The technology was tested by NASA’s Psyche mission launched from Earth.
The spacecraft is equipped with a laser transceiver capable of sending and receiving laser signals.
In recent days, spacecraft have sent a signal from a distance of 10 million miles, and according to NASA, experiments prove that this technology can be effective.
NASA officials said that the technology will be further tested in the coming months and the process of sending or receiving data will become lightning fast.
He said that this technology would be important for human travel to Mars as it would enable video streaming.
The system is currently being refined by scientists to ensure that the spacecraft sends the laser in the right direction.
