NASA X-Ray tech could enable superfast communication in deep space

New technology could use X-rays to transmit data at high rates over
vast distances in outer space, as well as enable communications with
hypersonic vehicles during re-entry, when radio communications are
impossible, NASA scientists say.

The technology would combine multiple NASA projects currently in
progress to demonstrate the feasibility of X-ray communications from
outside the International Space Station.

The radio waves used by mobile phones, Wi-Fi and, of course, radios,
are one kind of light. Other forms of light can carry data as well;
for instance, fiber-optic telecommunications rely on pulses of visible
and near-infrared light.
