NASA and Nokia plan to set up a cellular network on the moon


The US space agency NASA aims to return to the moon by 2024, and this time even to establish a small base on it that can be used for research purposes and as a sort of transit station for additional missions around the solar system. This time it will be based almost entirely on collaborations SpaceX, and on the use of existing technologies – including cellular networks.

In a joint announcement, NASA and Nokia announced that they will collaborate to establish a fourth-generation cellular network (LTE) on the lunar surface. This network will be used for communication between the astronauts themselves, and between them and the base station. As part of the project, Nokia will explore how the equipment originally developed can be adapted to urban communications needs, even to the moon’s atmospheric environment.

This is not even the first time that Nokia has revealed ambitions for deployment beyond Earth’s borders. Already in 2018, Nokia joined the German research company PTScientnts for the exact same purpose – the establishment of a cellular network on the moon – but the same project did not progress. This time, hopefully, the collaboration will end more positively.
