The discovery was reportedly made by the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA or Sofia).

Jim Reuter, associate administrator for NASA's Space Technology Mission Directorate, tells UPI that cell service will facilitate easy, fast and reliable communication between spacecraft, landers, rovers, habitats and individual astronauts on the moon.

Additional particulars about what the announcement will embrace weren't launched - however NASA teased that the invention will contribute to "efforts to be taught concerning the moon in assist of deep area exploration". "Flying above 99% of the atmosphere's obscuring water vapor, SOFIA observes in infrared wavelengths and can pick up phenomenon impossible to see with visible light", NASA said.

While it spends much of its time looking deeper into space, exploring distant planetary systems and the birth and death of faraway stars, it has revealed important information about other objects in our own solar system.

Nokia announced this week a partnership with NASA to construct a 4G network on the moon.

"As part of NASA's Artemis program, the agency will send the first woman and next man to the surface of the moon in 2024 to prepare for our next big leap - human exploration of Mars as early as the 2030s".

The Finnish company stated that NASA was selected to deploy an "ultra-compact, low-power, and space-hardened" wireless 4G network on the Earth's satellite lunar surface, as a part of NASA's plan to establish and promote a long-term human presence on the Moon by 2030.

Aside from Bleacher, the teleconference will be attended by Paul Hertz, astrophysics division director at NASA Headquarters; Casey Honniball, postdoctoral fellow at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center; and Naseem Rangwala, project scientist for the SOFIA mission.
