Nokia will send 4G internet to the Moon by the end of 2023.

Nokia has announced the launch of a 4G mobile network on the Moon by the end of this year after it was selected by NASA to build the first-ever cellular network on the Moon in 2019.

The network will be stored in a Nova-C lunar lander designed by Intuitive Machines and will launch via a SpaceX rocket. A solar-powered rover will accompany the lander, and an LTE connection will be established between the two.

Nokia's 4G communications system will land on the Shackleton crater, along the southern limb of the Moon. Nokia has assured us that the technology can withstand the harsh conditions of space.

The plan is to use the network within Nasa's Artemis 1 mission, which will send the first human astronauts to the Moon's surface since the 1972 Apollo 17 mission.
