First satellite to have a web address in orbit, UoSAT-12 (2001)

UoSAT-12 was an experimental mission used to demonstrate and test a number of new technologies.  On January 25, 2001, the UoSat-12 spacecraft became the world's first web server in space when an Internet Protocol stack was uploaded to the satellite, allowing experiments in extending the Internet to space to be made by NASA Goddard as part of its Operating Missions as Nodes on the Internet (OMNI) effort.
