British radio antenna arrives at space station
February 18, 2020

British radio antenna has arrived at space station as its first industrial contribution to the International Space Station today.

The communications antenna is part of a consignment of supplies that arrived on a Cygnus freighter.

The terminal will enable astronauts to connect with scientists and family on Earth at home broadband speeds.

The equipment will be fixed to the exterior of Europe's ISS science module in a few weeks' time.

This will improve the current arrangements for radio links.
