Is There Anything Cooler than Space? aka NextGen Inspiration: The Interplanetary Internet (IPN)

Laura Chappell, American Innovator, Researcher, and Educator; Founder of Chappell University

Accelerated deep-space exploration and planning for off-Earth colonization is creating a new field of communications analysis. Deep-space exploration programs rely on a variant of the "terrestrial" Internet to communicate with spacecraft such as Voyagers 1 and 2 which send information back from beyond our solar system. We will look at the three elements that make deep-space communications possible and peer into live traffic from beyond Earth. From solar panels that are "grown" to a telescope that will put Hubble to shame, we will delve into projects and concepts to inspire the next generation, the "space generation".
