EM2 in the Pub Part 11: space communications

How will we send selfies from Mars back to our friends on Earth? How will we call into those important work meetings?

Dmitrios Tsifakis takes us through the practicalities of getting information back and forth across the solar system. Spoiler: it’s not that easy…

EM2 is the Earth to Moon to Mars projects, to develop and test technology for humankind’s colonisation of other world. NASA has identified a moon base as the springboard to a mars base, so Boswell Technologies is spearheading a grass roots effort to test as much technology as possible before it goes into space.

This pub night in Canberra brought together experts from a range of sciences to discuss the issues colonisers on the Moon might face.
