Live Via Satellite! Communications in the Space Age
October 29 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Live Via Satellite!
Instant, worldwide communications around the world are so common today, they are taken for granted. One of the earliest efforts at NASA was to launch satellites to relay telephone calls and television. Even the early experiments created a dramatic impact on society, and now, multiple companies and nations operate worldwide satellite networks. We will trace the history of communications satellites, and what the future might bring.
