ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

feeder link

A feeder link is like a really long string that helps to connect things that are far away from each other. Think of it like if you wanted to play with your friend who lives really far away, you might have to use a long string to talk to each other. That long string is like a feeder link.

But instead of talking to your friend, a feeder link is used to connect things like satellites in space. Satellites can be really far apart from each other, so we use these feeder links to help them communicate with each other and with people on Earth.

Feeder links are important because they help make things like our phones and TV work better. Without them, it would be a lot harder for us to talk to people who live far away or to watch our favorite shows on TV.
