Web link delivers scientific data

World Brief

The U.S., China and Russia turned on a new broadband Internet connection Tuesday designed to transmit huge quantities of scientific data.

The link, which will be able to deliver information like human genome mapping, space exploration data and earthquake monitoring, may become the basis of the next-generation Internet service.

With 10-gigabit-per-second capacity, the new line is called the Global Ring Network for Advanced Applications Development.

According to a report in Singapore’s the Straits Times, the link begins in Chicago, traversing the Atlantic to pass through Amsterdam and Moscow, then heads across Russia to Beijing and Hong Kong and across the Pacific back to Chicago.

In China, the project is being handled by the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
