Reconnaissance Orbiter, which has been orbiting the moon since 2009. The Mona
Lisa transmission, NASA scientists said, is a major advance in laser
communication for interplanetary spacecraft.

planetary distances,” David Smith, a researcher working with the LRO’s Lunar
Orbiter Laser Altimeter — which received the Mona Lisa message — said in a
statement. “In the near future, this type of simple laser communication might
serve as a backup for the radio communication that satellites use. In the more
