Spaceborne antennas are designed for the tasks of space-to-ground and space-to-space communication, navigation, precision observation, space-based warning systems, etc. The electronic performance is the most important and final target that all other factors serve. On April 10, 2019, astronomers from China, the United States, Europe, Japan, Australia and Chile announced the observation of a black hole 55 million light-years away from the Earth using very long baseline interferometry (VLBI) technology composed of eight antennas distributed across the Earth, thus verifying Einstein’s theory of relativity
