The Habitat is equipped with an experimental Instantaneous Electron Spin Transmitter (IEST). This system operates on the principle that when an atom is split apart, one is able to alter the spin of an electron on one fragment by altering the spin on an electron on the other fragment without ever touching the first fragment. This works no matter how far apart the atom fragments are, and the change is always instantaneous.

The IEST consists of two metal disks coated in ionized atom fragments. One disk is placed on the Habitat and the other in Mission Control. A ferromagnetic needle is passed over the disks to change the spin of certain electrons. The corresponding electrons are altered on the other disk. This system can be easily installed on a normal computer; taking the place of a hard drive. The disks are the same size as hard drive disks; and the needle of a hard drive reader is already ferromagnetic to begin with. Thus, by using this setup, we are able to transmit digital information such as audio and video channels, as well as computer files such as biomeds and experiment results.
