Space phones: One with every jet-pack


The British National Space Centre (Motto: “Well, we’ve got as far as Modbury but it’s a start.”) and NASA are announcing plans to create a mobile network on the moon. This means you will no longer be able to escape the inexhaustible chatter of some jackass — albeit a jackass clad in a space suit — about how that “Ho Regina totally played him.”

The satellite-based system will allow robots and astronauts to contact the earth with a bit more efficiency than the current system and will allow testing tools to send messages wirelessly using low-power transmission system.
