NASA Successfully Receives Cat Video from 19 Million Miles Away
3 January 2024
In a remarkable feat of communication, NASA has received a cat video from a distance of nearly 19 million miles. The video was transmitted by NASA’s Psyche spacecraft, which is on its way to explore a metal-rich asteroid. Using laser technology, the 15-second 4K video shows an orange tabby named Taters chasing a laser pointer. This achievement highlights the advancements in optical communications and sets the stage for future deep space missions. The high-speed transmission, faster than most broadband internet connections, paves the way for potential HD image and video streaming from human outposts on Mars.
