Monday 10 February 2020 | 15:51 CET | News
The European Space Agency (ESA) said astronauts aboard the International Space Station plan to install a high-speed radio link to enable almost real-time connections with Earth. The upgrade to the ESA Columbus laboratory will relay data from experiments on the Station back to Earth almost instantaneously. The fridge-sized device will fly to the Station aboard Northrop Grumman's 13th Cygnus supply ship on 9 February.
