Washington: US Space Agency NASA (NASA) Nokia (NOKIA) has given the contract for the creation of a 4G network on the moon. Nokia plans to install the 4G / LTE network first and then convert it to 5G. USD 14. 1 million in funds will be provided to Nokia to start working on behalf of NASA.
Communication will be better.The
fund is part of a 370 million dollar contract signed under NASA’s ‘tipping point’ selection aimed at research for space exploration AND development needs to be pushed forward. NASA, in its official announcement, said that this 4G system can support communication on the lunar surface at a greater distance, faster speed and in a better way.
To the moon!
We are thrilled to have been named by @NASA as a key partner to advance “Tipping Point” technologies for the moon, to help pave the way for a sustainable human presence on the lunar surface.
So what technology can you expect to see? (1/6) pic.twitter.com/wDNwloyHdP

Total 14 Companies Selected
NASA has selected a total of 14 US companies for its mission to the Moon. A total fund of USD 370 has been allocated for this mission. The US space agency aims to develop a range of technologies to pave the way for Artemis’ permanent operations on the moon by the end of this decade.

It has to develop the technology quickly
Selected companies include SpaceX, Lockheed Martin, Nokia, Sierra Nevada, SSL Robotics, and United Launch Alliance (ULA). According to United Press International, NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine said on a live broadcast that if NASA 2028 had astronauts on the moon if it wants to achieve its goal of watching work, it will have to rapidly develop new techniques. Brydenstein further said that we need power systems that can stay on the lunar surface for a long time and that we also need to develop the ability to migrate to the moon.
At the same time, Bell Labs, the research arm of Nokia, expressed the pleasure of getting the contract on Twitter. He wrote: “We are very excited to be selected by NASA as one of the leading partners to advance the ‘turning point’ technologies for the Moon. This effort will help pave the way towards the permanent presence of humans on the lunar surface “
There have been previous attempts
This isn’t the first time Nokia has received this responsibility. Earlier 2018 by Nokia, the first attempt was made to start the LTE network on the moon. Nokia had partnered with PTScientists, the German space company Vodafone UK, with plans to create a network on the Apollo 17 landing. However, this plan could never be implemented.
