This feels like an Onion headline… even reading the article only makes me doubt everything even more…


Transfer of data is nifty imagine hundreds of rovers connected to the internet searching the surface.


The moon well have better signal than my bathroom.


I was thinking 14mil would only be enough to do an engineering study. But then again, since we’re already going back, they just need to build a network of sats going into fixed obits, piggybacking on other missions for delivery and probably also using existing satellite busses. The statement that they’ll use 4G sounds sensical: since 5G has a longrange weakness, may as well hold out for 6G.


Starlink hasn’t even rolled out yet and they’re going nuts on Moon already like wtf.
