Communicating With People On Mars?
We are excited to announce the release of our new weekly series called the #AskAbby Space and Science Show! Our founder and president Astronaut Abby will be appearing each Tuesday on YouTube, answering questions submitted by you, our community!
In this third episode please join Astronaut Abby as she answers the question: What’s the status of communication on Mars?
Communication is an important part of any space mission. Just think if you were on Mars and had a serious emergency! But communicating between Earth to Mars is no easy task! Join Astronaut Abby in this fun episode of #AskAbby which addresses questions about time delay experienced with space communications and specifically the time delay experienced when communicating with Mars.
Abby addresses how communication works in space and how NASA deals with the challenge of communication delays especially on a long duration mission to Mars. Including a discussion about what radio waves are, the concept of earth independence required for Mars exploration, a blooper reel and more!
