Great article on BBC on interplanetary communications: "Mars to Earth: How to send HD video between planets" http://bbc.in/StPewZ
Brought back to mind a lunch-time table discussion we held at W3C #tpac last week in Lyon (with and others..) The discussion was about the interplanetary Web. Can we imagine a Web that could extend across multiple planets, and if so how would this Web be different than the "World Wide Web" we currently know…and what (if any) changes would be required to underlying Web technologies?
Looks like there is plenty of work on the Interplanetary Internet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interplanetary_Internet) and potentially some work at the Web level going on at ESA (http://www.esa.int/esaCP/SEMFQJHWP0H_index_0.html)... Anything else going on out there? Any projects?
