“SURF allows you to set up a light path: a direct, secure, and fast connection between 2 points, for example between a researcher in the Netherlands and a telescope in China. This offers unique, worldwide possibilities, for example for more efficient research, for sharing facilities or large datasets, or for creating backups.”
