Nokia and NASA team up to bring 4G LTE on the Moon

US will get to Mars first will also land first woman on moon Trump

The contract is part of $370 million in new Artemis funding NASA announced this week. With 4G (fourth generation) mobile communication technology, NASA hopes Nokia can provide an efficient and reliable platform on the Moon.

Much like Gru, Nokia has consistently been fixated on taking the moon. Nokia tries to go through with a similar project in the past but was unsuccessful, but now NASA has shaken hands with Nokia and funded $14.1 million to go through with the project.

NASA has been working on the same mission and has certainly kept aside a budget of $370 million out of which only $14.1 million is given to Nokia to build a 4G network infrastructure for the Moon. "The system could support lunar surface communications at greater distances, increased speeds, and provide more reliability than current standards", said NASA.

"We want to build the lunar infrastructure that is going to enable an global partnership for the biggest, broadest, most diverse inclusive coalition of researchers and explorers in the history of humankind", said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine.


This all sounds so fascinating that it makes it hard to comprehend that this is no longer a fantasy and we may actually get a 5G or 6G on the moon one day too and that we may actually inhabit the surface of the moon someday as we live on earth! The company intends for the network to support wireless operation of lunar rovers and navigation, as well as streaming video.

"We want to build the [lunar] infrastructure...that is going to enable an worldwide partnership for the biggest, broadest, most diverse inclusive coalition of researchers and explorers in the history of humankind". "With NASA funding, Nokia will look at how terrestrial technology could be modified for the lunar environment to support reliable, high-rate communications", Reuter said.

Reuters also added that "the system would also extend to spacecraft". Although, we all know that it could not happen and the mission was not a success but the company is ready with the plan this time and is working with NASA to achieve their goal. This is one of the several contracts NASA is awarding to multiple companies, as it has plans to return to the moon.
