Future colonists on the Moon and Mars will definitely need communications, which means they need to be tested today. Nokia plans to send the necessary equipment as part of the IM-2 mission to Intuitive Machines later this year. By the way, cellular communication technologies on Earth and on the satellite will be determined.

The first communication module provides communication between the Nova-C lander, the Micro-Nova robot and the MAPP lunar rover. Engineers will test how cellular communications work at short and long distances, and will also understand whether it is possible to experiment on a large scale in a more extensive network.

Astronomers are already unhappy: they believe that cellular communications on the Moon interfere with radio telescopes.
