The Interplanetary Internet: The Next Frontier in Mobility [PANEL]
This session, under the umbrella of the "Interplanetary Internet" task of the U.S. Next Generation Internet initiative, brings together experts from the terrestrial Internet and space communications communities to present a top level overview of the challenges associated with taking the Earth's Internet "off-planet" to support the highly mobile expansion of human Intelligence throughout the Solar System. It is intended to be an executive summary of the highly focused INET 2001 Technical Tutorial No. 12 on the same subject. Panel chairman Dr. Vint Cerf will describe the overall concept and rationale for the project and key members of the Interplanetary Internet Research Group will discuss challenges associated with infusing the technologies into future space missions.
