You should get an ICMPv4 response with a type value of 3, and code value of 3.

RST happens when something borks up in an existing session, not in response to a SYN. (exception: when firewalls/NAT gateways are configured to reply with an RST, instead of dropping or ICMP).

Don't you kids know anything?

The reference to 4G limits has exactly what to do with this story?

I suppose about as much as a Space Shuttle has to do with a person standing next to it. I took it as a scale-comparison, but I understand your point about the story creating a potentially false impression that this is an evolution of 4G.

transfer data at the speed of 32 gigabits per second, which is 30 times faster than 4G LTE wireless technology in use today.

Exactly which carrier offers gigabit 4G LTE?

Some 4G implementations have a theoretical upper limit of 1 Gb/s for low-mobility agents.

The fact that to deliver the same development and certification process costs $1.6 billion less for SpaceX over Boeing is also interesting.

We won't really know this is true until it happens. I have high hopes for SpaceX - specifically I hope they can do much more with less. Either way though, this is a big win for everyone!

If Kip Thorne can win a year's worth of Playboys for his bet that Cygnus X1 was a Black Hole, when current theory from Professor Hawking says Black Holes don't really exist, then can Professor Thorne please give me a year's subscription to the porno of my choice due to the non-existent bet that this wasn't such a star?
