NASA's moon blaster

On its current space scouting mission, NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is using a pumped-up communications device to deliver 461GB of data and images per day, at a rate of up to 100Mbps. As the first high-data-rate K-band transmitter to fly on a NASA spacecraft, the 13-inch-long tube, called a Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier, is making it possible for NASA scientists to receive massive amounts of images and data about the moon's surface and environment in preparation for a possible landing there in the future.
