As technology becomes more advanced, the digital divide is becoming more pronounced in impoverished communities. Access to internet can be just as sparce in some communities on Earth as it is on the Moon! This is why NASA Glenn research center has partnered up with the Greater Cleveland Partnership to develop a Lunar WiFi framework. This framework will be used during the Lunar Artemis missions as well as to help implement a system to bring fast internet to our local communities!
