Coming Soon: Cell Service on the… Moon?

It’s no secret that space tech and the opportunity it holds have got me really excited…

Many of the technologies that seemed like billionaires’ pipe dreams are starting to become reality before our eyes.

This week, a lot of those developments have my eye.

Without delay, here are five things that have my attention this week:

1. Book Your Ticket to Space Now

Virgin Galactic confirmed last week that it is on schedule to launch its next spaceflight test in the coming weeks.

This will be the first of two tests — the first carrying two test pilots, the second carrying four “mission specialists.”

If the tests go off without a hitch, the company plans to fly Richard Branson himself in the first quarter of 2021.

The next possible date to launch? This Thursday.

2. SpaceX Launches 60 More Satellites

Sunday, SpaceX launched 60 more Starlink satellites into orbit. That puts the current count at 835.

A couple of weeks ago, after the previous batch of satellites was launched, founder Elon Musk said that once the satellites reach their location, they will be able to roll out a beta test to parts of the U.S. and Canada.

This is huge.

SpaceX plans on continuing to launch 120 satellites into orbit every month with the goal to deliver high-speed internet anywhere on Earth.

3. Coming Soon: Cell Service on the… Moon?

Remember Nokia, the company affectionately known for the cellphone called “the Brick”?

NASA just awarded Nokia of American $14.1 million to put a 4G network… on the moon.

According to the announcement: “The system could support lunar surface communications at greater distances, increased speeds, and provide more reliability than current standards.”

Why the moon?

With NASA’s goal of having a lunar base up and running by 2028, a reliable communications network would be necessary.

Can you hear me now?

4. Robinhood Hack Bigger Than Originally Thought?

According to an internal probe, Robinhood (the trading app your kids and grandkids are using) stated that a recent hack hit almost 2,000 accounts.

The reported hack syphoned funds from select accounts.

What’s Robinhood doing? Trying to up security, fast.

5. Elon Wants to Be on Mars in 4 Years

Last Friday, Musk stated he could see a four-year timeline to launch his first mission to Mars.

That would set the launch for 2024, but there is still a lot to be accomplished before then.

According to Musk said timelines are “only guesses.”

But either way he is dedicated to making sure his team reaches their goal.
