The High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program facility, or HAARP, is in the midst of a wide-ranging science campaign that will see the facility bounce signals off  the moon and Jupiter.

HAARP consists of 180 antennas designed to transmit signals into the ionosphere, which stretches 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).
