It is frustrating if you are unable to get a cell phone signal when you walk around the neighborhood: NASA and Nokia are going to put a 4G network on the moon’s surface. NASA granted $370 million to over a dozen companies to situate technology on the moon’s surface to attain its 2028 aim to construct a lunar station and ultimately support human presence there.

The innovations involve safer landing, robotics, cryogenic freezing, remote power generation, and 4G. Furthermore, NASA states that 4G could give more longer-distance communication, stable than the radio standards that are currently on the moon. Like on Earth, the 4G network that is used now will finally be enhanced to 5G soon. NASA gave $14.1 million to Nokia’s (NOK) Bell Labs for the project. Bell labs that was once managed by AT&T, will work with spaceflight engineering company Intuitive Machines to develop the 4G-LTE network.

According to John Oliver, 4G will probably operate better on the moon than it does on Earth because it won’t have any trees, buildings or TV signals to meddle with the 4G signal. The moon’s cellular network will also be specifically devised to withstand the features of the moon’s environment : radiation, space’s vacuum, and extreme temperature. It will still be working while there are lunar landings and launches, despite spacecraft significantly vibrating the moon’s surface.

Bell Labs stated spacewalkers will use its radio network for transmitting data, maneuvering lunar rovers, real-time navigation over lunar geography (imagine Google Maps for the moon), and streaming of HD ( high-definition) video. That could give a much better shot of astronauts jumping throughout the moon’s surface.
