“Space Internet” is Coming

Albuquerque Express – According to this linked article, NASA will have a viable “space internet” by 2011, which will allow for broadband access between planets, space stations, shuttles etc.   Sounds frivalous at first until you realize how much that kind of communication is a necessity for continued space exploration.

Which begs the question – how long before we get the first “Twitter From Mars”?  Sounds like a porn title, doesn’t it?  Or how long before an astronaut is busted for illegal file sharing (UFO – Unidentified Filesharing Object)?  Or the first Facebook break-up IN SPACE??

These are the things I think of when sitting on the toilet at 4am.

Thanks to my buddy Steve for submitting the article.

REVISION: PORN!  I totally forgot about that which the internet was created for. . . downloading PORN!  I’ll bet 50 bucks that a 10 year study in 2032 shows that 85% of internet bandwidth is used for I-Tunes 2020 and downloading porn!  Now I just hope to live long enough to see if I’m right. . . .
