Space Internet Governance - Video Recording Available

Great discussion today at our space Internet governance seminar.

Dr. Scott Pace’s prepared remarks were extremely informative, covering all aspects of the National Space Council and its inter-agency role within the federal government. The discussion between Dr. Pace and Dr. Vint Cerf regarding potential paths forward towards establishing some kind of international governance model was outstanding.

A recording of the video webinar is available at:

Dr. Vinton Cerf (one of the “Fathers of the Internet” and one of the driving forces in InterPlanetary Networking) and Dr. Scott Pace (Deputy Assistant to the President and Executive Secretary of the National Space Council) led the discussion.

Scott Burleigh (NASA/JPL’s chief Delay & Disruption Tolerant Networking architect) moderated the discussion. There was some time at the end for questions.

Discussion Questions:

  1. Do we need a governance model for the Internet in space (what will become the Solar System Internet, or SSI)?

  2. If so, what kind of framework should such a governance model have?

    1. Who are the stake holders?

    2. What kinds of input should they receive?

    3. What kinds of enforcement are available (or desirable)?

    4. Do existing organizations or models exist that could be useful in forming a framework for moving forward?
