This spiral antenna is a key component to keeping constant communication with astronauts on the @iss . Space communications are crucial and NASA has a "belt and suspenders" approach. Part of that approach is upgrading its very high frequency (VHF) communications systems on the ground. These act as a backup for the space station's primary communications systems. Under normal circumstances the "belt" is NASA's Space Network. This network, with its series of Tracking and Data Relay Satellites, provides near-continuous communications coverage between the station and mission control centers around the world. The "suspenders" are a series of ground stations, with antennas like the one pictured. This network provides backup two-way, audio-only communications when needed. NASA maintains VHF ground stations in two locations: @NASAWallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Virginia, and NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, California. These ground stations are strategically placed to maximize contact over North America with the Russian Soyuz spacecraft as it carries people and supplies to and from the space station, as well as contact with the station itself. #communication#soyuz#timetravel#future#futurism#streaming#scifi#scifiworld#scififilm#scifimovie#sciencefiction#science#netflix#robot#fantasy#digitalart#amazing#startrekdiscovery#thelastjedi#justiceleague#retro#geek#nerd#neon#syfy#iss#nasa#startrek#starwars
#communication. I believe in everything and nothing all at once. Most of all I believe this would benefit humanity to the fullest. I know it would make me better and prevent so many oversights and miscommunication preventing the very connection of a unified society. Thoroughly. I believe this.
I love how modal verbs can add emotion and power to your message. If you're in business, using these enables you to be empathetic, assertive, mindful, respectful or polite even if you don't know all of the words in English. Modals are like the accelerator and brake in a car. Use them like a pro, communicate with professionalism and personality. #grammar#communication#englishlearning#berlin#languagenergy
Partnering with the team of digital professionals at Efront, we break down the clients needs and objectives, we analyse, challenge, problem solve. And then piece it all together as a dynamic digital communication platform. Or as efront would say: "This is what we call digital clarity".

Fun Friday! Today’s fun game to finish the session for this little friend was all about the dinosaur. He was able to choose what he wanted to play with but he had to practice drawing it onto the window first. He then had to plan how he was going to crawl across the mountain with the dinosaur and shooting balls in hand, make it through the tunnel and also request for help because those pesky balls are very hard to make fit into the dinosaur’s mouth. Lastly he was able to shoot the target at the end of the tunnel! That’s a lot of work for the brain and body tucked away into one very fun activity. . . . #funfriday#motorplanning#handstrength#drawing#finemotorskills#eyehandcoordination#proprioception#communication#occupationaltherapy
