Wireless connectivity is at the core of all space missions, whether close to the Earth, on the Moon, or deep in space.  Although the physics of wireless connectivity is the same "out there" as it is here on the surface of the Earth, the surrounding environment affecting the wireless transfer of data is very different in space when compared to terrestrial communications such as cell phones and WiFi.  In this session, a brief overview of space communications will be presented, as well as the operational environment experienced by these communications.  Following this overview, some recent results on performing wireless communications in space using artificial intelligence will be discussed, including first-ever in-orbit wireless connectivity experiments using the International Space Station.
