8. TV In Space

LISTEN OR READ BELOW

Electronic signals travel at the speed of light, and they never stop. In fact, they continue to travel through the cosmos.


This mural was designed to show how a television signal travels through space. The farther out you go, the earlier the transmissions get. Felix – the first signal ever sent out – was over 80 light years from earth at the time the mural was created.


The flags represent when each country started regularly broadcasting television.
