  1. 1.0 1.1 The mass and drag are from the part config, but the game handles it massless/dragless.


The Communotron 88-88 is a deployable antenna, and is the antenna with the smallest transmission interval and highest total throughput. The Communotron 88-88 is deployed during science data transmission and retracted when transmission is complete.

Currently[outdated], it has "PhysicsSignificance = 1", making it a zero drag and massless part.

Description

The Communotron High-Gain Antenna, model 88-88 allows for long-range, high speed communication.
