The Moon Is Getting Its Own Mobile 4G Network In 2019

Nokia, for its part, will be making the space-ready networking gear which will reportedly weigh less than 1 kg, or, about a bag of sugar.

4G cell phone network services will go beyond Earth to reach Moon by 2019, Vodafone said.

Next year the Moon will receive the first coverage area mobile communications, which will transmit information to the high definition of the moon to the Earth.

This will be the first ever privately-funded Moon landing.

According to reports of TOI Vodafone Germany and Nokia are associated to create the network on Moon, which will hold up the operations of rovers pulling scientific data and reporting back from the astronomical body's surface. Two Audi lunar quattro rovers will also be landed there and intend to study NASA's Apollo 17 lunar roving vehicle.

Last year, China and Europe were in talks to build a moon base and I'm sure they'd be happy to arrive to an already working 4G network.

Vodafone also announced that it has appointed Nokia as its technology partner for developing space grade network.

"The great thing about this LTE solution is that it saves so much power", Böhme pointed out, "and the less energy we use sending data, the more we have to do science!"

The 4G network won't be the exact same as the one we're used to here on Earth, so future astronauts won't be able to travel to the moon and upload pictures to Instagram, but it will broadcast a 4G signal over the 1800MHz frequency band. In order to push humans to the other world, we need to develop infrastructures extra-ordinary from our home planet.

"It is also a great example of an independent, multi-skilled team achieving an objective of vast significance through their courage, pioneering spirit and inventiveness", Vodafone Germany CEO Dr. Hannes Ametsreiter added.

Linking two Audi lunar rovers to a space station in the Autonomous Landing and Navigation Module (ALINA) will be the primary goal of the mission. The companies will stick with a 4G network rather than 5G because that technology is still relatively new, and its reliability isn't proven. "These aims have potentially wide-ranging implications for many stakeholders and humanity as a whole".
