DailyTech – NASA Testing New Interplanetary Communications Network

NASA has announced that it is now testing a new type of deep space communications, and while we are still far from the sub-space communications we see on sci-fi shows, the new system is a significant improvement over existing communications methods.

NASA is comparing the new communications system to a type of deep space internet. NASA manager of space-networking architecture, technology, and standards Adrian Hooke said, “This is the first step in creating a totally new space communications capability, an interplanetary Internet.”
