The internet is going to be on the moon.
Nasa has teamed up with a mobile phone company, to build the first 4G mobile phone network on the Moon!
The space agency’s Artemis programme aims to establish a sustainable human presence on the Moon. Ideally in the next few years,.
The plan isn’t really for astronauts’ to play Fortnite – it’s more about using the data for other things.
The network – which Nasa is building with phone-maker Nokia – will be used for remote controlling lunar robots and even streaming high-definition video.
Astronauts will be able to communicate via voice and video as well as exchange data through the wireless communications.
The system will include a base station, radio antennas and user equipment – but it’s not yet clear if this equipment will be a normal smartphone.
