On Earth, we have grown accustomed to near instantaneous speeds of communication, yet it takes at least 0.25 seconds to get a signal from a satellite directly overhead, and 0.1 seconds to get a signal from the US to Europe. While these speeds are practically instantaneous, in the vast emptiness of space, milliseconds turn into hours just within our solar system. To explore space we must develop better tools to handle delays in communication arising from huge distances. This, as the following infographic by Futurism explains, is communication's next frontier.
