This places an intentional delay on each outgoing and incoming packet. The length of the time delay depends on the mission being simulated. For a moon mission, a second and a half each way should suffice, making almost-real-time services like videoconferencing, chat and IM almost tolerable. Users simulating more far-flung missions will likely stick with email and the like, and experiment with more batch-oriented ways of browsing the Web.
