    29         -humanity to Mars by 2026. Do we think that 41-year-old technology like TCP/IP
    30         -or the 21-year-old HTTP will work on Mars? Can you call Gmail as a web app on
    31         -Mars? Someone in the audience suggested that it would just take "patience"
    32         -which elicited widespread laughter. Krekel said that the protocols we have will
    33         -not work on Mars.</i></p>

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

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