Moon to Get 4G Network

moonVodaphone, in partnership with Nokia, plans to provide a 4G network on the moon in 2019. The project is part of a larger mission to place a lander and two “Audi Quattro Rovers” on the lunar surface. The initiative, spurred by the Google Lunar X Prize (which ends in March with no winners), will launch in 2019 on a Falcon 9 rocket.

4G coverage will be enabled by a 1kg Nokia cellular station which will allow real-time HD video to be beamed from Rovers to the main Lander to mission control in Berlin.
