Space communications feature large round-trip time delays (for example, between 6.5 and 44 minutes for Mars to Earth and return, depending on the actual distance between the two planets) and highly variable data error rates, for example, bit error rate (BER) of 10 −5 is very common and even higher BERs on the order of 10 −1 is observed in the deep-space environment.
