Future-proofing the Interplanetary Internet

#CyberMonday is one of the biggest online shopping days of the year. We're investigating how to bring cyber to outer space by developing new space communications technology. Space communications is very difficult because missions don't always have a full bandwidth connection with Earth. Reliably delivering data from missions to different destinations across not-always-connected paths currently requires a lot of advanced planning. A technology called Disruption Tolerant Networking will change all that. Space Communications Architect, Dave Israel and Exploration and Space Communications Outreach Lead, Amber Jacobson break down the technology.
