Warning: Steem witnesses executed a hard fork on 2020-05-20, seizing 23.6M STEEM from 65 accounts. The funds were transferred to an account named @community321, the ownership (and intentions) of which have not been revealed. The witnesses claim to have been targeting accounts which defended against a hostile takeover in early March, but at least 2 accounts on the list have been inactive for over 4 years.
Nokia plans to create a mobile network on the moon
Nokia and NASA are planning to enter into a partnership aimed at creating a 4G mobile network on the moon.
This week, NASA pledged $14.1 million to build a 4G mobile phone network near the moon's south pole, the Daily Star reported.
In addition to the mobile network project, NASA is funding the development of a wireless charging system and ways to generate and store power using the moon's current resources.
NASA Administrator Jim Bredenstein noted that the 4G network will enable astronauts on the Artemis mission, and possibly future lunar colonists one day, to communicate while working on a large area of the moon's surface: 'The system can support satellite communication at greater distances, increased speeds, and provide more reliability than current.' "We want to build an infrastructure on the moon that will enable an international partnership for the largest, broadest and most diverse and diverse alliance of researchers and explorers in human history," Bredenstein said.
"The system will also extend to spacecraft," said Jim Reuter, assistant director of NASA's Space Technology Mission Management.
Funded by NASA, Nokia will look at how to modify ground technology to suit the lunar environment to support reliable, high-speed communications, among other beneficiaries of new contracts announced this week by SpaceX and United Launch Alliance, which will look for new, safer ways to manufacture rocket fuel on the moon and Mars surfaces.
