It's been fifty years since we've heard astronauts and ground folks talk over each other ("step on each other" in 1970's CB radio parlance). Sitting on the floor a few feet away from our 1970's X-ray producing family CRT (television) I always worried that they might not hear each other because they both talked at once, and something terrible might happen.
It's possible that since the audio we heard was in the Earth time frame, maybe it sounded different at the Moon. Those NASA folks probably had it under control somehow.
@CamilleGoudeseune's comment under Time-scale for investigation of the "hut" object observed from the Yutu-2 lunar rover has got me wondering if it will be any different in 5-10 years hence:
Today another British news outlet offered: If it is a hut … it could become hot property – if only because the 2.6-second round trip that light takes to travel between Earth and Moon probably makes it impossible to participate in Zoom meetings.
So I'd like to ask:
Question: When cis-lunar Artemis astronauts and folks on Earth communicate via audio (e.g. EVAs) will they still step on each other's words like we heard during Apollo?
I'm interested in both actual stepping-on of words; one person doesn't hear the other, and apparent stepping-on, what we hear at home. Maybe they will do real-time realignment of ground vs space audio channels?
I guess for video it's also possible (I've managed to live zoom-free so far so I don't know what it's like) but without visual cues (body language, mouths moving) I think the problem is worse for audio-only.
