Mobiles on the moon? Nasa prepares trial for takeoff

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:05 am

After conquering the farthest corners of the globe, mobile phones are now destined for the final frontier - space.

Even in the cosmos there will be no escaping the ringtone as Nasa and the British National Space Centre (BNSC) prepare to trial a mobile phone network for the moon.

Astronauts and robots exploring the moon’s surface will only be a text message away after the system goes live later this century.

The satellite system should ensure a full four-bar signal for lunar colonists living in the base Nasa wants to build at the south pole of the moon after 2020.

The stellar vision of the mobile’s future even tops the effort that managed to get a text message to the top of Mount Everest.

    There are 2 new DIY test kits…one lets you test air, surfaces and water for MRSA/VRE…the lab that tests the sample emails you a report about what it found…and finally the technology used by NASA in the Space Station to keep its air clean and free of MRSA is available for home use…the other kit uses Petri Dishes to test indoor air for germs, virus, mold, etc. which is good for asthmatics and allergy sufferers…I guess you could say it’s good for anyone who breathes.
