NASA Internet Speed Test 2018 → Internet Speed at NASA is 91 GBPS

Update - 2017.10.10

The space organization’s shadow network can transfer upto 91 gigabits per second or 91,000 megabits per second. 

Some Facts To Know:

  • NASA formed on July 29, 1958 (57 years ago), Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
  • The NASA space internet connection is 14,000 times faster than your internet speed.
  • The NASA space organization can transfer the 91 GB data per second means(6.6 megabits per second) and such an internet speed can’t provide for homes.
  • For comparability, the typical broadband connection velocity within the U.S. is ten megabits per second or more than 13,000 times slower.
  • The experiment utilized the ESnet, which allows a site to site file transfer at up to 100 gigabits per second, for two sites connected via ESnet.  It doesn’t relate to regular internet access, at all.
  • That speed was achieved on a particular connection between SC13 in Denver and the NASA Goddard facility in Maryland during an experiment.
  • It’s not the internet speed.  It’s like the Internet, but only connects a few research facilities and organizations around the world. It’s meant to share huge data files from science experiments.

About NASA?

NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration ) is the agency of the United States Federal Government responsible for the civilian space program. NASA was started in 1958 as a part of the United States government.

About ESnet?

The Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) is a high-performance, unclassified national network built to support scientific research.

    Capitalization matters. 91 GB/sec is not the same as 91Gb/sec. Internet is rated in bits, as your actual article says, but your headline caused me to lose a friend (LOL) because I tried to explain to her that capitalization matters in the difference between MB, Mb, GB, and Gb. She said “You’re not as smart as you think you are about certain subjects.” and pissed me off.

    So, NASA’s connection is 6.6megabits per second, but the standard home connection is 10.0megabits which is 13000 times slower? WTF? are you on drugs?

      Yeah, the article should say gigabits, not megabits there. Overall, this article has many problems that should be corrected.
