SpaceX's next astronaut mission for NASA has been pushed to November following an issue with its rocket engines

  SpaceX's next astronaut mission for NASA has been pushed to November following an issue with its rocket engines NASA's next mission with SpaceX will launch "no sooner than early-to-mid November," the agency announced Saturday. That mission, called Crew-1, will ferry four astronauts to the International Space Station and back. The launch was previously slated for Halloween. The delay allows SpaceX to investigate an issue with its Falcon 9 rocket engines. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. NASA's four-astronaut team will have to wait a little longer to visit the International Space Station.

Espoo, Finland – Nokia has announced further details after being named by NASA as a partner to advance “Tipping Point” technologies for the Moon , deploying the first LTE/ 4 G communications By building the first high performance wireless network solution on the Moon , Nokia Bell Labs is once

NASA says 4 G could provide more reliable, longer-distance communication than the current radio standards in place on the moon . That small cell tech is currently being deployed for 5 G networks across the world. This story was first published on CNN.com, " NASA and Nokia are putting a 4 G

Nasa has announced that it has signed a contract with the American subsidiary of Nokia for the installation of a 4G network on the Moon within four years. The future facility should allow reliable, high-speed communications on Earth's natural satellite for astronauts and vehicles on site.

The company Nokia has been commissioned by the Nasa to install a 4G infrastructure on the Moon . The network should be operational by 2024, reports an article by XDA Developers relayed by Phonandroid Friday, October 16.

It is in four years that the American space agency plans to send humans to Earth's satellite . For this contract, the American subsidiary of Nokia will receive 14.1 million dollars (nearly 12 million euros).

To the moon!

We are excited to have been named by @NASA as a key partner to advance “Tipping Point” technologies for the moon, to help pave the way towards sustainable human presence on the lunar surface.

Reliable and high-speed communications

Why 4G on the Moon? "The system could support communications on the Moon's surface at greater distances, at increased speeds and provide reliability beyond current standards," , NASA commented upon awarding the contract.

Nokia will thus adapt terrestrial 4G technology to the Moon. It is about setting up "reliable and high speed communications" , explained Jim Reuter, mission director for the American space agency This network will not only be useful to astronauts, but also to vehicles and to future lunar infrastructure.

For The First Time, Astronomers See Plumes of Sulfur Dioxide From The Volcanoes of Io .
For the first time, astronomers have seen clear evidence of plumes of toxic volcanic gas erupting forth from the volcanoes of Io. New radio images of the Jovian moon have finally provided some answers to long-standing questions about its atmosphere. Io is the most volcanic place in the Solar System. More than 400 active volcanoes speckle its surface, the manifestation of the moon's internal stress as it is gravitationally tugged in different directions not just by Jupiter but by the planet's other three Galilean moons. Io's thin atmosphere and surface are dominated by sulfur dioxide - yes, brimstone - belched from the interior.
