The Moon is About to Get 4G Internet

As humanity looks towards the stars once again after decades, the moon has turned into the first hurdle that we must surpass before we can extend further. One of the biggest problems associated with the potential colonization of the moon is the lack of internet because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up making communication much more difficult.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that none other than Nokia are stepping in to bring 4G internet to the lunar surface! Collaborating with Space X, the Finnish telecom giant is planning to launch the network this year, and it will be interesting to see what sort of impact this has on the prospect of lunar exploration and the like.

One major issue is that the surface of the moon is not very hospitable, which can make it harder to set up an internet network than might have been the case otherwise. In spite of the fact that this is the case, Nokia has clearly done its homework. The former telecom juggernaut will be upgrading its tech in order to make it more durable to the difficult conditions of the moon.

Astronauts will be able to use this internet network to communicate with their home base, and live video calling from the moon will also now be possible! Nokia also has some pretty solid goals for this network with all things having been considered and taken into account.

For one thing, the company wants to help find ice on the moon. This can be a vital source of water which can sustain a potential lunar base, along with providing some deeper insights into the nature of the molecular structure of the moon.

We are living in exciting times, and Nokia has somehow managed to launch itself back into relevance against all odds. However, some are saying that Nokia is being a bit too optimistic with its 2023 deadline. In order to meet the deadline, both Nokia and Space X will have to implement a flawless launch strategy.
