Welcome to Science Fiction,
where we explore the vast web of science...
..and try to untangle the fact from the fiction.
BUD-E, what's today's question, please?
How are you, love? I've just been in for a service, there.
Feeling chipper, so I am.
Today's question comes from Eden in Kilmeaden.
Where exactly is the Internet? Is it up in the sky?
Hang on there a minute, I'll ask the Internet. Its knows everything.

What's the password on this, again?
The Internet is a vast network
allowing people all over the world to exchange information.
It's sort of like a world-wide web. Ha!
To help us understand how the Internet works,
let's imagine a really big road network.
Ha! I'm in! Right.
The cables, wireless networks and satellites
are like the motorways, roads and bike lanes.
You could say really it's like an information superhighway. Ha ha!
Over this physical network,
information travels in all directions
and in many different forms.
There's just so much to learn.
Look here, there's a cat playing banjo!
So, now you know, Eden, the Internet is all around us,
not just fixed at one point in the sky.
So that's just a load of old science fiction.
