Everytime I see something from NASA or some doc i’m watching, they always (always) go on about the slow
data rate between the rover and earth and fair enough right, it takes a day to send a packet from here to there.
So while being bored I thought to myself, internet on mars, no.
but, I would be able to still recieve data, collect my emails live on mars in peace right! so it got me thinking
what is the fastest transfer rate? I originally thought a low bit stream maybe similar to 56k modem…
turns out that if done correctly, TV streaming, just high data rates are possible to mars! - take a look
at the attachment…
which is annoying considering i only get 4.9mbit while someone on mars could be streaming
TV up to 150Mbit… i’m on this planet and the best connection i can get is 4.9mbit :~
