NASA's OPALS Beams Video from Space: FIRE THE LASER!





NASA has now successfully communicated large amounts of data  to earth via laser, updating communication from space to earth that the experts say is the equivalent update from dial-up to DSL. It's all high def, too. What can we expect from the ISS next? Will Robonaut 2 be walking around making documentary films for the crew? Will we one day be communicating with lasers around the solar system? Time will tell.
