The Moon is Now a Wi-Fi Hotspot

Complimentary Wi-Fi is so commonplace that a business advertising its “hotspot” in the window seems somewhat passé. But a new hotspot location should impress even the most jaded among us: For the first time, scientists have demonstrated it’s possible to beam a wireless Internet signal across the 238,900 miles separating Earth from the moon. The demonstration, done by researchers at NASA and MIT, means that future moon explorers could theoretically check in at Mare Imbrium and post lunar selfies with greater speed than you do from your home network. The team will present its findings June 9 at the CLEO laser technology conference in California. (via The Moon is Now a Wi-Fi Hotspot – D-brief | DiscoverMagazine.com)
