If we could still try to take down the moon, it will soon be possible to hang up from the lunar star, since it will soon have its own telephone network. It is the Finnish group Nokia which has indeed just been charged with setting it up by NASA. Or more precisely the Bell Labs laboratories, owned by the Nokia group since 2016.

The choice of Nokia is the result of a call for tenders for an amount of 14.1 million dollars which should make it possible to finance this project within the next two years. The various elements that will make up this network must indeed be on site before the arrival, in 2024, of the first two astronauts (a man and a woman from the Artémis 3 mission). The first to set foot on the moon's surface since 1972.
