One step closer to UFOs parking in earth orbit stealing our bandwidth.

And it'll be easy, too, as we'll probably just have our password be something obvious like "earth" spelled backwards.

With the new system, delays caused by spacecraft moving behind planets or solar storms disrupting communications are not a problem because the data packets are not discarded when the outages occur, but instead are stored as long as necessary until an opportunity arises that allows them to be transmitted
That's actually super useful.
