Audi, Nokia and Vodafone working together to provide Moon with technology similar to earth. Audi is already working on a Quattro bespoke to the moon
Five decades ago, Nasa astronauts stepped on the moon for the first time. After so many years Audi, Vodafone and Nokia have teamed up to provide Earth’s Natural satellite its first 4G cell-phone network. According to reports, it’s estimated that the project will be accomplished by the year 2019.
The hardware must weigh less, this is because as the weight increase on the spacecraft it becomes very difficult for it to lift beyond Earth’s gravity. Nokia here has taken the initiative of developing the hardware for this mission. Vodafone, on the other hand, will be responsible for providing the 4G network. It won’t be providing 5G network as the technology is comparatively new and it is still not reliable for this scale of a project.
While Audi has teamed with Part-Time Scientists and is working on developing an electric lunar rover for this mission. Just like in all Audi cars, this electric lunar rover will also be equipped with an all-wheel-drive system known as the Audi Lunar Quattro. But the only difference is that this electric rover will be equipped with six wheels rather than four wheels which is usually seen in all Audi cars. If all goes according to plan, the electric lunar rover from Audi will be the first wheeled vehicle to travel on the moon after General Motors lunar rovers launched 40 years ago.
All the three companies, Vodafone, Nokia and Audi will work with Part-Time Scientists with an aim to complete the mission by 2019 and be ready for launch. This mission will be powered by non-other than Elon Musk’s Space X and the hardware will be put in a Falcon 9 rocket. According to Vodafone, this launch will take place at Cape Canaveral.
