NASA grants permission to Nokia to put 4G LTE network in Moon

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has granted Nokia permission to deploy a 4G cellular network on the moon. Nokia will be allotted around  14.1 million dollars for this mega project. The grant is a part of NASA’s “Tripping Point”, which is a research and development project for space exploration.

Nokia’s research firm Bell labs tweeted ” To the moon! We are excited to have been named by @NASA as a key partner to advance “Tipping Point” technologies for the moon, to help pave the way towards sustainable human presence on the lunar surface. So, what technology can you expect to see?

Back in 2018 in a collaboration with PT Scientist and Vodafone were set to launch an LTE network at the site of Apollo 17 landing, but the project never took off.
