The First Space-Based Supercomputing Platform

ConnectX, a collaboration of experts in aeronautics, mathematics, physics, engineering, security and business, says terrestrial computing is too limited, and aims to replace the current cloud computing, storage and network infrastructure being used for big data with a space-based supercomputing platform. The consortium will create this next-generation big data computing and communication platform using miniature satellites that leverage the environment in space: extreme cold, no resistance, and zero gravity. The system further replaces binary code with a new symbol structure for optimized transmission, storage, processing and delivery of analyzed data.
