NMSU researchers helping NASA develop systems to transmit data from Mars New Mexico State University

Two Mars Exploration Rovers are currently giving the public a taste of the information that can be sent back from the surface of Mars. Future expeditions to Mars are expected to gather even more information — and require more sophisticated technology to send this information back to Earth.
An interdisciplinary team of researchers from New Mexico State University is helping NASA study the best ways of transmitting information back from Mars.
