Dodging the Roadkill: Dear Hotels, We need to talk about your Wi-Fi

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – We all have our favorite hotel chains. We each have different needs and expectations when we travel. But the one thing that is absolutely imperative for me is the internet.

I’m writing stories on the road and I need a good connection. But not only that, we ALL could use good WI-FI for all of our social media and email.

Most hotels fail miserably.

When I bought my motorcycle and started traveling, I immediately noticed that the “free Wi-Fi” advertised by the hotels I stayed in was a miserable excuse for bandwidth. It took forever to connect, took forever to load the page, and watch a video or live stream?

“Fuh-get-about it!”

Why is there a lack of good internet connections today at hotels.

NASA Laser Communications research may lead to faster data transfer in Space

 

Written by Andrew Good
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Thought your Internet speeds were slow? Try being a space scientist for a day.

The vast distances involved will throttle data rates to a trickle. You’re lucky if a spacecraft can send more than a few megabits per second (Mbps).

But we might be on the cusp of a change. Just as going from dial-up to broadband revolutionized the Internet and made high-resolution photos and streaming video a given, NASA may be ready to undergo a similar “broadband” moment in coming years.

NASA says Quantum Teleportation could one day be used to create a Quantum Internet

 

Written by Andrew Good
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Quantum physics is a field that appears to give scientists superpowers. Those who understand the world of extremely small or cold particles can perform amazing feats with them — including teleportation — that appear to bend reality.

The science behind these feats is complicated, and until recently, didn’t exist outside of lab settings. But that’s changing: researchers have begun to implement quantum teleportation in real-world contexts. Being able to do so just might revolutionize modern phone and Internet communications, leading to highly secure, encrypted messaging.
