4G is coming … to the moon, but it’s not just all for Facebook and Instagram likes.
In a bizarre turn of events, tech giant Nokia and Nasa appear to have teamed up to ensure future astronauts can post selfies on their Instagram account and tweet about their experiences from the moon, but only in the first example.
Nokia has received a $ 14.1 million (EUR 12 million) financing contract from the US space agency to develop and deploy a 4G network around the world.
The new contract is part of a series of US $ 370 million (EUR 315 million) contracts that were issued on Friday, October 16. The contracts were all awarded as part of Nasa’s renewed attempt to return to the moon in 2024.
Nasa said, “The system could support lunar surface communications at greater distances, at higher speeds, and with greater reliability than current standards.”
The installation of the network could also help develop a permanent future base on the moon.
Jim Reuter, Assistant Administrator, NASA’s Directorate of Space Technology Mission, said, “With funding from NASA, Nokia will examine how terrestrial technology can be modified for the lunar environment to support reliable, high-speed communications.”
The idea of 5G infrastructure on the moon was also discussed. However, it is currently believed that a 4G network is reasonable and requires much easier installation and less infrastructure.
