NASA was able to transmit data at a rate of 62 megabits per second, completely error free to the moon! The laser sharp data demonstration named "Lunar Laser Communication Demonstration (LLCD)" was deployed from a New Mexico ground station to a spacecraft some 239,000 miles away.
The LLCD is NASA's first laser powered two way communication system and will likely replace the slower radio wave transmission system used in the past. LLCD is hosted aboard NASA's Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE), launched in September of this year.
The lasers are capable of improved image resolution and 3D video transmission between long distances. It is meant to help the space agency develop the laser based technology into a reliable communication system that can withstand the limits of space.
