Publication of the link for the webinar on this website has been pushed out to Tuesday, August 4th. We are working to expand the number of attendees with a different platform. Email with the link will also be sent out to IPNSIG members.

Discussion Questions:

1.     Do we need a governance model for the Internet in space (what will become the Solar System Internet, or SSI)?

2.     If so, what kind of framework should such a governance model have?

a.     Who are the stake holders?

b.     What kinds of input should they receive?

c.     What kinds of enforcement are available (or desirable)?

d.     Do existing organizations or models exist that could be useful in forming a framework for moving forward?
