           20  +<p>Due to the time it takes for a radio signal to propagate between the planet
           21  +Earth and the planet Mars the Silktorrent packet based software applications
           22  +will be very competitive among Earth-Mars communications applications. A
           23  +citation from <a href="http://lwn.net/Articles/652580/">lwn.net article</a>&nbsp;<i>(<a href="https://archive.is/TfuCm">archival

           26  +<p style="text-align: right;"><i>...Krekel noted that Elon Musk wants to get
           27  +humanity to Mars by 2026. Do we think that 41-year-old technology like TCP/IP
           28  +or the 21-year-old HTTP will work on Mars? Can you call Gmail as a web app on
           29  +Mars? Someone in the audience suggested that it would just take "patience"
           30  +which elicited widespread laughter. Krekel said that the protocols we have will
           31  +not work on Mars.</i></p>

           33  +<p style="text-align: right;"><i>But we already have Mars on Earth in places
           34  +where internet connectivity is not all that good. In 1981, there were 300
           35  +computers connected to the internet, but now there are now billions of devices
           36  +in the world that are still using this phone-based model. It turns out that's
           37  +not actually true, he said, some are following other models. There are
           38  +communication and synchronization mechanisms that some of these devices are
           39  +using to transfer data directly between them without using the internet.</i></p>

           46  +<p>The Silktorrent packet based application architecture might also be
           47  +beneficial at the airline industry, where planes that pass each-other, exchange
           48  +Silktorrent packets. The routes, takeoff times, speeds, landing times of planes
           49  +are often times public, which means that a passanger jet on a long flight can
           50  +pass a Silktorrent packet wishlist to a regional flight in mid-air, the
           51  +regional flight lands before the plane at the long flight, offloads the
           52  +wishlist to ground based servers, those upload the request response to another
           53  +regional flight that is expected to be at the range of the long-flight plane.
           54  +That kind of arrangement can compensate for the lack of satellite bandwidth for
           55  +whatever reason, economic, weather, space-weather, satellite maintenance, etc.
           56  +All the planning, routing, is fully automated and all airports have internet
           57  +connections, WiFi-s, etc. anyways. Similar schemes can take place between
           58  +trains, cars, lorries, ships. Buses and metro-trains and trams have relatively
           59  +well predictable routes and schedules. Even taxis can participate. The routes
           60  +of people, who use GPS-navigation at their cars are also known in advance,
           61  +allowing further data packet route planning.</p>
