Re: Servers in space ?

Considering the number of communications and spy satellites in orbit, which are basically orbiting computers with accessories, I think this is a solved problem (for at least LEO/GEO and assuming a mega-flare isn't involved).

If you want to put serious processing power in space, I think powering it all would be an issue, not radiation shielding.
