Want to use Snapchat or Twitter while on holiday on the moon? You can now.

Moon_7Or check in on Foursquare while on the dark side of the moon? You have to part-laugh at the (factual) headline that ‘the moon officially has faster broadband speed than rural Ireland’. It’s unreal to think that internet can travel 400,000kms, and be faster than we can get in parts of Ireland. If you want more info on the article you can read the Wired article and the deep-dive details from the Optical Society’s piece on it

Personally, I don’t subscribe to the belief that faster internet alone would lead to greater economic prospects for Ireland. My belief assumes the internet runs at a satisfactory speed which in Dublin it does for the most part. But, I digress now…..
So shall we see space tourists Tweeting in realtime?
