Space ransomware

In 2050, first stations on moon and probably mars will exist. As communication is the core of current and future life, here lies also the weakness. The complexity to establish relyable and stable communication to inter-space stations is huge and is an interesting target for espionage and targeted modification of important communication packages. The one who controls the communication channels, controls the non-earth stations. Critical information such as research data can be exchanged directly into money by criminal groups by tapping the "wires".

rbuszka Which comes first, the chicken (mainstream means of space travel) or the egg (destinations to visit)? Neither, since the first to foray into space will be the flamboyant moneyed elite (think Branson or Musk) and it will have its own mainstream cachet simply for being travel into space; later, businesspeople will decide to create destinations in order to draw more people into the expensive luxury of space travel.

Sam Marcelo I don't know if that is entirely true. The prediction of people travelling through space in the early 2030s is probable, and that means that if they are to travel, there will need to be locations for them to visit.
