Moon to Get Its Own Mobile Phone Network Next Year

Almost 50 years since the first NASA scientists walked the moon; tactics are on to equip the moon with its first mobile phone network, which is predictable to be set up by next year itself.

The mobile phone network on the moon would facilitate high-definition streaming from the lunar landscape back to the earth.

This network is a part of the first privately financed moon mission and will be supported backed by Vodafone Germany, network equipment maker Nokia and carmaker Audi, the companies said on Tuesday.

Well is seems like, Elon Musk’s moon mission may soon get a shot in the arm as mobile phone operations on the lunar surface, from next year.

The launch is scheduled from Cape Canaveral on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. Berlin-based PTScientists are on board for the project, and will work with all the companies involved. The recent report, quoted Hannes Ametsreiter, Chief Executive, Vodafone Germany, as saying, “This project involves a radically innovative approach to the development of mobile network infrastructure.”

Vodafone said that it had appointed Nokia as its technology partner in the initiative to develop a space-grade network with a small piece of hardware weighing less than a bag of sugar.

The mobile network being planned for the moon is 4G rather than the latest 5G network as the next generation 5G networks are still in the trial and testing stage and are not stable enough to be confirmed to be compatible to work from a lunar surface.

The launch is part of a project that will eventually make trips to the moon commercially viable. Researchers said the plan is to connect two Audi lunar rovers to a base station in the Autonomous Landing and Navigation Module (ALINA). The 4G network will enable the Audi lunar rovers to transfer scientific data and HD video while they study NASA’s Apollo 17 lunar roving vehicle. Researchers said the two rovers would also send live HD pictures to earth as they travel to within 200 metres (656 feet) of the rover.
