This document presents an example data transfer in a delay tolerant network. The particular delay tolerant network is the Interplanetary Internet, and the purpose of this document is to illustrate the key concepts in the Delay Tolerant Network architecture [DTNRG03]. The document describes the network and follows the progress of a bundle as it is transferred through that network.
