The mission by PTScientists , with the very original name “Mission to the Moon”, is due to launch in 2019 from Cape Canaveral on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. It will be the first privately funded Moon landing.
PTScientists have already chosen their allies – Nokia (their devices can withstand anything), Germany, Audi and Vodafone (who just can’t miss out on the most expensive data prices of all time). Nokia will be displaying their famed knack for creating indestructible devices by producing the lightest space-grade network ever created (weighting less than one kilogram). Keeping up with the theme of brilliant names, it is dubbed “Ultra Compact Network”.
Audi will create the rovers that will be using the network to communicate. Among their communications will be an HD video broadcasted to a global audience as they make their way to the Lunar Rover used by Apollo 17.
Vodafone have displayed that their base station will be able to use the 1800 MHz frequency band on the moon and should be successful bringing 4G coverage to the moon..
