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

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

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