So what does #LCRD look like? The @NASA_Technology demonstration is the size of a king-size mattress. We have relied on radio communications since we first started exploring space, but @NASALaserComm has the potential to revolutionize our systems for @NASAArtemis:

Apollo 13 holds the record for the farthest a human has ever traveled in space. The @NASAArtemis missions will break this record with the help of the SLS. How? Thrust! 🔥 The SLS generates more thrust at launch than the Saturn V. Learn more HERE >> go.nasa.gov/3I1M8zD
