Summary (IA Generated)

Soon, astronauts on moon missions won’t have any excuse for not answering their texts.

The grant is part of $370 million worth of contracts signed under NASA‘s ‘Tipping Point‘ selections, meant to advance research and development for space exploration.

It will be ‘the first LTE/4G communications system in space,’ according to NASA’s announcement.

‘The system could support lunar surface communications at greater distances, increased speeds, and provide more reliability than current standards,’ the announcement also reads.

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.

Nokia‘s research arm, Bell Labs, provided more details in a Twitter thread.

According to Nokia-plan-to-provide-cellular-service-on-moon/2001602710195/” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>UPI, NASA said in a live broadcast of the announcement that the network would extend to spacecraft, and help develop technology fit for the moon.

While there aren’t details about the timeline of this project becoming a reality, it’s all in support of NASA’s goal of having a lunar base on the moon by 2028, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said in the broadcast.
