Cat Video Beamed Via Laser From Deep Space

On December 11th, NASA did a deep space laser communication test from 19 million miles away by sending a UHD video of a cat from NASA’s Psyche mission which was launched on Oct. 13. The signal took 101 seconds to reach Earth, and the data transfer rate was 267 megabits per second (Mbps).

The video in question is of an orange cat named Taters chasing a red laser dot, which you can see here.

All communications technology evolves toward a single point of convergence: the ability to send cat videos.
