hcg50a writes "NASA has successfully tested the first [0]deep space
communications network modeled on the Internet. Working as part of a
NASA-wide team, engineers from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in
Pasadena, CA, used software called Disruption-Tolerant Networking, or
DTN, to transmit dozens of space images to and from a NASA science
spacecraft located about 20 million miles from Earth. The
store-and-forward protocol was designed by NASA in consultation with Vint
Cerf. Here's a discussion from last July [1]before the test began."
