Internet Going Galactic -To & Beyond

Shutterstock_1994426_3IT Wire announced that InterPlaNet (IPN) will serve as a backbone for a future inter-planetary system of Internets, acording to Vint Cerf, Google vice president and Internet evangelist. Cerf co-wrote the TCP/IP protocol which underpins the Internet in the 1970s and began work on the InterPlaNet in 1998.

The InterPlaNet protocol is designed to cope with delays caused by the vast distances of space, with data taking up to 20 minutes to travel between the Earth and depending on how far apart the two planets are.

"We are working on standardising the protocols to enable spacecraft communicate and share information across the solar system," Cerf said while delivering a talk on the 'Future of the Internet' during a visit to Bangelore, India.
