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.

That's the idea behind a new line of rash guards and wetsuits being marketed by the online retailer boatstogo.com. The suits are designed after the patterns on a lionfish, a venomous type of fish popular in aquariums. The striking patterns on a lionfish help protect it by warning predators that it is poisonous, but would such a pattern work if worn by a human?
