Amidst two busy weeks there has been plenty of lunar talk. None of our projects are about space, but we did find plenty of interesting links to other people’s.
As we explore our solar system, the biggest determent to communication speed won’t be the bandwidth, but the latency. As bandwidth gets larger and larger, we’ll quickly become aware of the real bottleneck in the network. There is an upper bound limit to the response time, the speed of light, which cannot be broken. There are ways to get around this, but they are hacks at best and can certainly be improved.
