Communication System Design for Interplanetary Distances
Communications systems which can send and receive messages across hundreds of millions of miles are an obvious necessity if mankind is to effectively explore the solar system. The design of such communications systems is a fascinating study; recent developments make communication feasible to distances of several hundred millions of miles.
