It is annoying if you cannot get a cell phone signal when you wander around the neighborhood: NASA and Nokia are going to place a 4G network on the moon. NASA bestowed $370 million to over a dozen firms to locate technology on the moon’s surface to accomplish its 2028 goal to construct a lunar station and eventually support human presence there. The innovations involve a safer landing, robotics, cryogenic freezing, remote power generation, and 4G. Moreover, NASA says that 4G could provide more longer-distance communication and stability than the radio standards that are on the moon today.

Meanwhile, the 4G network that is used now on Earth will be improved to 5G soon. NASA gave $14.1 million to Nokia’s (NOK) Bell Labs for the plan. Bell labs that was once run by AT&T, will work with spaceflight engineering company Intuitive Machines to produce the 4G-LTE network.

John Oliver said that 4G would probably operate better on the moon than it did on Earth because it wouldn’t have any trees, buildings, or TV signals to interrupt with the 4G signal. Also, the moon’s cellular network will also be devised to withstand the features of the moon’s environment: radiation, space’s vacuum, and extreme temperature. It will still be running while there are lunar landings and launches, despite spacecraft significantly vibrating the moon’s surface.
