This session will explore the possible establishment of a neutral time reference to support interplanetary networks. We will start with an orientation to the process for establishing and distributing accurate time on Earth, the role of time in networking, and the current state of thinking about timekeeping for lunar networks. Lunar networks will be our target application area because the Moon is the first place we will establish a persistent network away from Earth and in-situ time will be a necessary component. Lunar networks are under active design and development these days, so the discussion is also timely. With this context we will contemplate governance protocols for time distribution and synchronization that anchor in time as an apolitical public good for interplanetary activities.
