Guest Lecture by Scott Burleigh on Interplanetary Networking
Tomorrow (July 24) at 5pm (sharp) we are going to jointly enjoy a guest lecture by
Scott Burleigh, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology
Title: Deep Impact Network -- The first exercise of delay tolerant networking in an interplanetary environment
On 18 October 2008, NASA began experimental operation of the most geographically extensive internetwork in history. Two of the subnetworks were located in the Protocol Technology Laboratory at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology. The third was on-board the Deep Impact “flyby” spacecraft, renamed EPOXI, in interplanetary space. Over the course of the experiment, the distance from EPOXI to Earth ranged from 49 to 79 light seconds (14.7 to 23.7 million km). In this talk, we will briefly consider how DINET came to be, how it was built, and the results of the experiment, with a bit of focus on the “checkout” exercise that first showed us that the thing would work.
The presentation will take place at our usual Zoom link. You find the participation link in the Materials page in our dCMS.
See you there!
