The Inter planetary (World?) Wide Web developed under the The Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN) system, will allow astronauts to Google from the moon or tweet their observations from space, National Geographic reports.

DTN is not only used merely for internet browsing, it is a netword for simplifying space command and control functions—such as power production or life-support systems—crucial for future space initiatives.

In November 2008 NASA tested the network by sending space images to and from the EPOXI spacecraft, 32 million kilometers from Earth. NASA plans to equipp missions from 2011 with the Space Internet.
