Thank you. I didn't realize it was so high on the ground. I know the technology for hardening is available, but clearly that costs money, and if patented that would add way too much for low threat situations. It makes a lot of sense for network technology, as you said, it has plentiful error correction and retransmission protocols as it is.

Because working with geosynchronous satellites I learned that it mostly affects them, and satellites in LEO aren't affected very much, and the ground has quite a bit of atmosphere for additional shielding. I don't work with stuff on the ground anymore. Do you not see that I said things like "I wonder" and such? Just provide an answer and don't be a douche.
