With the advent of efficient fiber laser and amplifiers, low noise photon-counting detectors, turbo-codes, and low-cost ground receiver architectures, it is now feasible to consider very high rate data links from deep space. A set of options leading to a 10-100 Mbps link from Mars to Earth is described.
