Packets in Space!

Evidently they are working on making TCP/IP (the protocol of the internet) work in space. They have to compensate for the huge latencies (a Google request to the Sun would take 8 minutes each way) and relativistic effects.

Personally, I'm looking for UDP over neutrino flux ;)

Yes, El, I'm a geek.
