NASA's First Laser Communication System

LLCD will demonstrate laser communications from lunar orbit to Earth at six times the rate of the best modern-day advanced radio communication systems.
LLCD will demonstrate optical communication from lunar orbit using a ground receiver 39-inches in diameter.
The main goal of LLCD is proving fundamental concepts of laser-based communications and transferring data at a rate of 622 megabits per second, which is about five times the current state-of-the-art from lunar distances. If some think that 622 Mbit  is a lot of data, that is only two 4K HD Moon RAW color shots.
I hope stereo ones. Than big 4K LED screen at NASA and what a spectacle . Just as you are 50 miles above Moon surface. And so a few months, during the mission life time.

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Detailed picture of Apollo 11 landing site ? Still  no? Though from much higher altitude and even through Marsian athmosfere we can easily spot Curiosity parachute flopping around !?
