Hope no aliens intercepted it.  I can just hear them saying to skip that planet - the women there sure are ugly.

Just kidding. :-)

Yeah, she was not the most beautiful of women out there, but look on the bright side, it could have been Katie Price!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I wish they would send the real Katie Price to the moon.  She almost ran me off the road the other day in her chavvy pink Range Rover.

User a laser to sent information to space explorers at light speed is not a waste of money.
Radio waves travel at light speed so we've been doing it a while!

I think a lot of people have misunderstood the article. They did not project a picture of the Mona Lisa onto the moon from earth!  Nor did they project a picture of the Mona Lisa onto a craft orbiting the moon from earth!
They transmitted a digital signal of the Mona Lisa via pulsed laser light to the moon orbiting satellite that relayed the signal back to earth. If you are reading this via fibre optic broadband then your router is receiving the same sort of signal the satellite received only it was getting the signal via direct line of sight and not a cable [obviously].

It is very fascinating. All the money we spend on fancy high tech computers and mobiles will be replaced in years to come with the new laser types.  With this in mind, i think computer and mobile phone companies should severely reduce their prices now, seeing that we will have to replace it all when these companies tell us that they are worthless because the laser technology has now taken over.
If your on fibre optic broadband then you already have the technology!

Not really.

There is a huge difference between sending a laser signal along a fibre optic cable between two fixed points and transmitting a laser signal directly to a fast moving satellite a quarter of a million miles away.
