Huge HAARP antenna array bounces radio signals off Jupiter

The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program facility, or HAARP, is in the midst of a massive science campaign that will see the facility bounce signals from the moon and Jupiter.

HAARP consists of 180 antennas designed to transmit signals into ionospherewhich extends from 30 miles (48 kilometers) to 600 miles (965 km) above sea level and is seen as the area where Earth’s atmosphere meets space, according to NASA (opens in new tab). The ionosphere plays an important role in radio transmission, as it reflects radio waves. Many satellites occupy this part of the atmosphere, which is strongly influenced by the solar weather.
