The moon will soon have a mobile internet internet network. Vodafone and Nokia have revealed plans to install a 4G network on the moon which will be used during the first private mission to the lunar surface. In 2019, a German firm called PTScientists will launch a pioneering expedition to the moon, Metro.co.uk reports.

Its Audi Lunar Quattro robotic explorer rovers will use the 4G connection to communicate with a base station called the Autonomous Landing and Navigation Module.

Hannes Ametsreiter, chief executive of Vodafone Germany, said: ‘This project involves a radically innovative approach to the development of mobile network infrastructure.’

Robert Böhme, chief executive of PTScientists, said the moon mission could lay the groundwork for missions into the solar system and deep space.

‘In order for humanity to leave the cradle of Earth, we need to develop infrastructures beyond our home planet. With Mission to the Moon we will establish and test the first elements of a dedicated communications network on the Moon,’ he said.

‘The great thing about this LTE solution is that it saves so much power, and the less energy we use sending data, the more we have to do science!’
