Scientists are developing sensors that could be placed on a person’s body and send data back to Earth.
The idea is to provide a seamless and efficient way for astronauts to communicate with family members on Earth, where communications are more difficult.
But space-borne sensors also offer the potential to monitor the health of a person on Earth from space.
A team at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, or JPL, has developed a series of sensors that can send data from a smartphone to a remote server.
The sensors are equipped with sensors that are able to send data at the rate of 20 megabytes per second.
That’s enough data to fill a hard drive for months, but it’s not enough to store a human body for weeks or months.
In addition, a small amount of data will have to be transferred through a computer chip for the sensors to work.
“The sensors are not designed to do anything like a body scanner,” said David A. Parnell, the group’s principal investigator.
“But we think we can use them for other things.”
The sensors would be mounted on a human’s body, rather than a body mount like a car seat.
The sensor could then transmit data through an Internet connection, making it easier for families to send messages from space or from a living room.
Prenson said that while the sensors would likely not be used for human-to-human communication, it’s a step in the right direction.
“It’s a first step in a really important direction,” he said.
The sensors have not yet been tested on humans, but they are designed to work on smartphones and laptops.
The team is working with other organizations to develop a more powerful and flexible system that can be used on computers and smartphones.
The devices could also be used to provide medical diagnostics, Prensons team said in a press release.
While this is the first device that uses space-topped electronics to send an actual signal, the team hopes that other researchers will use the technology to make more powerful devices.
The project is part of NASA’s $10.5 billion Spaceborne Communications and Navigation initiative, which is funded by a variety of private and public sectors, including the private sector.
