Developed in the past few years, 4G internet connectivity is certainly something that most of us seem to take for granted. But now, it's being taken to the next level (quite literally) due to Elon Musk's plan to put it on the moon.

I can't even get 4G coverage in my back garden... yet alone outer space. But in a recent announcement, it was revealed that the Falcon 9 will help deliver the telecoms network to the lunar service.

For those of us in the entertainment industry, it's frustrating enough being hardly able to stream a YouTube tutorial on music production. And so having internet connectivity on the moon seems like an impossible concept.

Vodafone Germany & Nokia are teaming up with scientists to prepare for an unprecedented moon landing. Scheduled for a 2019 launch, the Falcon 9 will begin its journey at Cape Canaveral in Florida, USA.

"It’s important to give the power back to musicians as opposed to having a middleman kind of control everything."

In a interview, one of the scientists involved with this launch said:

"This is a crucial first step for sustainable exploration of the solar system. In order for humanity to leave the cradle of Earth, we need to develop infrastructures beyond our home planet."

All of this means that eventually, we'll be able to check our Facebook feeds and listen to b whilst on the moon. That's pretty damn awesome!
