The COSETI Observatory

  • Free-Space Laser Communications

    • In the future, NASA will be using free-space laser communications for its deep space probes.
    • Next century, the first HDTV pictures from our space probes sent to investigate the nearest stars will be transmitted by laser.
    • Communications between geostationary satellites and low earth orbit satellites will also be supplemented by laser links.
    • The future of communications is largely photonic, be it on the earth or between us and other stars!
