Earth’s Satellite “The Moon” will get its own 4G Mobile Network for the Very First Time

The earth’s lunar satellite will be getting its very own 4G mobile network. This is the first time such a technology is being shifted to the barren surface of the moon.

The operation is expected to begin sometime in 2019. The high definition streaming from the lunar landscape will really revolutionize the evolutionary future of human beings as conscious creatures that do more than just survive.

Vodafone, Nokia and Audi are going to collaborate on this project. This is a mission which is going to take place over five decades after the first man landed on the moon. That would have been Neil Armstrong who died recently leaving his name behind as a legend.

A space grade network was needed and Vodafone appointed Nokia as its major partner to handle this aspect of the moon 4G mobile network. The overall hardware would weigh less than a bag of sugar.

This may sound unbelievable but it is true. The three companies are working in tandem with PTScientists and the launch of a SpaceX Falcon rocket is due in 2019 from Cape Canaveral.

Radical innovation in the form of a mobile network infrastructure is also needed before this thing gets off the ground.

The decision to make a 4G network instead of a 5G network was reached after it was noticed that the latest networks are still in the experimental stages.

Not everything about 5G networks has been figured out just yet. They are being tested and trials are underway. The companies handling this mission are pretty bold and ambitious.

Nokia Chief Technology Officer and Bell Labs President, Marcus Weldon, said: "We are very pleased to have been selected by Vodafone to be their technology partner. This important mission is supporting, among other things, the development of new space-grade technologies for future data networking, processing and storage, and will help advance the communications infrastructure required for academics, industry and educational institutions in conducting lunar research. These aims have potentially wide-ranging implications for many stakeholders and humanity as a whole, and we look forward to working closely with Vodafone and the other partners in the coming months, prior to the launch in 2019."

Vodafone Germany CEO, Dr. Hannes Ametsreiter, commented: "This project involves a radically innovative approach to the development of mobile network infrastructure. It is also a great example of an independent, multi-skilled team achieving an objective of immense significance through their courage, pioneering spirit and inventiveness."

Robert Böhme, CEO and Founder of PTScientists, said: "This is a crucial first step for sustainable exploration of the solar system. In order for humanity to leave the cradle of Earth, we need to develop infrastructures beyond our home planet. With Mission to the Moon we will establish and test the first elements of a dedicated communications network on the Moon. The great thing about this LTE solution is that it saves so much power, and the less energy we use sending data, the more we have to do science!"

All these companies want to make impossible things possible. This is their goal and objective. The final product which will rest on the lunar surface will be termed an Ultra Compact Network.
