Google launched interplanetary internet

Google has been busy planning on how to deliver internet to spacecrafts and other planets, working with NASA and planning on delivering to the ISS and other spacecraft used by other countries.

“Google realized as far back as 1998 that space-based Internet has problems that don’t face the traditional Internet design – speed-of-light communications are instant on Earth, but at interplanetary distances, that’s slow, and can cause problems. An interplantary network could help overcome these problems.”
