The Internet

jbrodkin writes “IPv6 is here, but what’s up with IPv7? Nothing, says Vint Cerf. While one day there may be another new Internet Protocol, work is not happening on it now. ‘At the moment there doesn’t seem to be any incentive for inventing yet another one,’ he said in an interview. However, he contends that 2011 will be a Big Year for his pet project, the extraterrestrial ‘InterPlanetary Internet.’ The ‘Bundle’ network protocols will be tested in space and standardized to ‘make them available to all the space-faring countries.’ As they are used with more spacecraft, ‘we can literally grow an interplanetary network that can support both man and robotic exploration.’”
