The US space agency has selected Nokia to deploy an "ultra-compact, low-power, space-hardened" wireless 4G network on the moon, which is part of NASA's plans to have a long-term human presence on the moon by 2030. Nokia secured itself $14.1 million, which will be installed remotely on the moon.

How exactly? It will be installed remotely on the surface of the moon using a lunar hopper built by Intuitive Machines in late 2022 according to Nokia. Nokia continued, explaining: "The network will self-configure upon deployment", while the 4G wireless network will provide "vital command and control functions, remote control of lunar rovers, real-time navigation and streaming of high definition video".

But don't worry, Nokia has explained that the cellular network can be upgraded to 5G in the future.
