Space: the final IP frontier
These are the voyages of the range of IPv6
Its many-year mission:
to explore strange new device implementations;
to seek out new planet-covering nano-device applications and new ad-hoc networking technologies;
to boldly go via DTN where no internet segment has gone before.

I like that one! :-)
