NASA's mobile network on the moon..!

Well, if you think that the only place you can escape pesky calls from telemarketers is the Moon, forget it :P as NASA in collaboration with BNSC (British National Space Centre) is going to build mobile network on the moon by 2020. Sounds cool na! This is going act as a communication channel for the astronauts and robots at the lunar colony near the south pole of the moon and the scientists on earth. So come down, neither you are going to moon nor anybody is going to call you there.. hehe.

This joint mission is called MoonLite Mission and the trial mobile network is expected to launch by 2010 with a protype version within next 2 years to count on its feasibility. I know telemarketers won't leave them too. Bank loans, credit cards, insurance, mobile packages and blah blah blah all specially tuned for astronauts.. lol..
