The U.S. National Science Foundation is joining forces with a broad consortium of Russian ministries and science organisations, as well as the Chinese Academy of Sciences, to create the first round-the-world computer network. Apart from scientific projects, the three countries plan to use the network for e-learning collaborations in schools and universities, including shared seminars and distance learning programmes. This network serves as a physical and symbolic reminder of our common goal of solving problems and building a world of peace and prosperity.
