I believe that this company should commit itself to achieving the goal of putting a Web browser in space. No single space project in this period will be more impressive to other browser makers or more important for the long-range exploration of the Web, and none will be so difficult to accomplish. But, in a very real sense, it will not be one browser going to space – it will be an entire industry. For all of us must work to bring it there.

Top innovations in Opera Space Edition:
* Interplanetary Network Transport Protocol (INTP) support allows for long-range connectivity with the Internet, even at extreme ranges that subject traditional networking protocols to increased latency and failure due to light-speed limitations.
* Mission Mode, in which all browser operations can be monitored, adjusted and audited by Mission Control (except when using private browsing).
