    Do you think they're doing this because they plan to send people to live in space soon?

    The problem with internet in space is the delays in space. When it can takes seconds, miutes, or even hours, from sending a request and resieving the result, due to the finite speed of radio waves over interplanetary distances, the current TCP and IP protocols just results in timeouts, then something new has to be invented.

    Not only people use internet, but also automatic sonds, stations or other space units. We're not talking about surfing the web, but to more or less automatically send and recieve data.

    Yep, in some cases, 10 hours two way transit time, like Pluto-Earth.
    Still, to send a message 5 billion Km out and back in half a day, pretty frigging good, I'd say. Think about how long it took to get a message from Australia to London 200 years ago.
