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.

  1. If we ever need to live on the moon, this is pretty good, even if it doesn’t help with our survival! Maybe they could make oxygen shield things next! That would be useful!
