New NASA tech could provide the entire solar system with internet

In order to make this giant leap for the future of space internet, NASA partnered with one of the “fathers of the internet,” Dr. Vinton G. Cerf, vice president and chief internet evangelist for Google and a distinguished visiting scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. Cerf worked with NASA’s team to develop the technology, and he predicts many benefits in space as well as on Earth, especially in disaster relief conditions. “Our experience with DTN on the space station leads to additional terrestrial applications especially for mobile communications in which connections may be erratic and discontinuous,” said Cerf. “In some cases, battery power will be an issue and devices may have to postpone communication until battery charge is adequate. These notions are relevant to the emerging ‘Internet of Things’. ”
