1- I can't wait for the first Space-walk to go "Unplug-plug" the router when it stops working

2- With our weak protection on wireless transmitions an attacking alien race could find this very usefull to get access to millitary instalations... or to pirate movies and watch porn!

I wanted to add! is that a picture of the actual thing? if so why does it look like the back of my old 1980's TV?

 It very well may be. If it's attached to the outside of the ISS, it will need to be heavily protected against all the different types of radiation and particles and crap flying through space. Plus EMP's from the sun.

With a network of these they still will not be able to reduce the transmission time delay.  -I could write a term paper on this explaining it all.

This is pretty neat. I figure that once this gets figured out and works well, next step will be to have communications to the moon with minimal delay, and once that's done, next step will be to mars!
