NASA's Lunar Laser Communication Demonstration (LLCD) has made history using a pulsed laser beam to transmit data over the 239,000 miles between the moon and Earth at a record-breaking download rate of 622 megabits per second (Mbps).

LLCD is NASA's first system for two-way communication using a laser instead of radio waves. It also has demonstrated an error-free data upload rate of 20 Mbps transmitted from the primary ground station in New Mexico to the spacecraft currently orbiting the moon.

In case you haven't heard, there's going to be a solar eclipse on Sunday! My understanding is that the closer you are to being in that red area the more of the solar eclipse you'll see.

As a point of reference, Seattleites will be seeing 83 percent of the sun's surface covered around sunset, while some national parks in the direct line will see a 95 percent eclipse.
