The Moon will have its first mobile phone network

The Moon will have its first mobile telephony network next year, which will allow the sending of high-definition real-time images of the lunar landscape to Earth, as part of a project to support the first mission to the satellite financed by private entities.

The Moon will have its first mobile telephony network, a mission that is already being planned in conjunction with Vodafone Germany, Nokia and Audi.
Vodafone Germany , the manufacturer of network equipment, the multinational company Nokia and the automotive Audi said today that they are working together on this project to support the mission of installing a telephone network on the moon, this is being developed 50 years after that the first NASA astronauts walked on the Moon.

Vodafone said it has designated the multinational Nokia as its technology partner to develop a space-grade telephony network, which will be a small device that will weigh less than a bag of sugar.

The companies are working with the Berlin company PTS scientists on the project, with a launch scheduled for 2019 from Cape Canaveral on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, Vodafone said.

Mobile phone network on the Moon?
"This project involves a radically innovative approach to the development of mobile network infrastructure in the terrestrial satellite," said Vodafone Germany CEO Hannes Ametsreiter at the time of the announcement of the project.

One executive involved said the decision to build a 4G network instead of a 5G network was adopted because the next-generation networks are still in the test stage and are not stable enough to ensure that they operate from the lunar surface.

Undoubtedly a pretty impressive news, although we should be prepared for the technology to go beyond the terrestrial borders.
