INTERPLANETARY INTERNET (Next generation of INTERNET)

What is an IPN?
The Interplanetary Internet is being designed to be a network that connects a series

of Internets. These internets would be located on planets and moons, or aboard

spacecraft.It is the means whereby Earth's nervous system expands outwards across the

solar system and beyond.


The potential applications of a Interplanetary Internet extend well beyond the

management of space missions. People who surf the Internet today and tap websites in

extreme locations such as Antarctica may some day be able to communicate to web or ftp

servers on Martian micro satellites to request data directly from Mars. And that's

just the beginning. Eventually there will be web servers on the International Space

Station, on (or above) the Moon and other planets, and other regions of the solar

system.
