Several high-tech companies are teaming up on a plan to put a mobile phone network on the moon next year.


Vodaphone Germany, Nokia, and Audi are working on a mobile network and robotic vehicles that are part of a private expedition to the moon, timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary year of the first manned lunar landing.

jilin 吉林快3德国沃达丰,诺基亚以及奥迪公司正在研发一套手机通讯网络和自动化探测器,这些向月球发起的私人探险的一部分,该探险刚好赶上人类首次登月任务的第50个周年庆。

The project with PTScientists in Germany would use a 4G network to send high-definition information from rovers back to a lunar lander, which would then be able to communicate it back to Earth.


Project scientists say the system uses less energy than having rovers speak directly to Earth, leaving more power for scientific activities.


They plan to launch the vehicles from Cape Canaveral next year on a Space X Falcon 9 rocket.

他们计划明年搭载SpaceX的“猎鹰9号”火箭将探测器从Cape Canaveral(卡纳拉维尔角)发射升空。
