NASA, Nokia Buidling 4G Network On The Moon

Good news – you’ll soon be able to play Candy Crush and scroll through Instagram on the moon.

NASA and Nokia are teaming up to build a 4G communications network on the moon, which will be deployed by 2022.

The network would be used for functions like navigation systems, controlling lunar rovers, and streaming high-definition video.

It’s the next step in a long-term plan to build a permanent moon base – which itself is a step towards one day sending people to Mars.

Would you volunteer to live on the moon?
