What does 5G have to do with space you may ask? And that is a valid question.

Who better to explain it than a space agency. The European Space Agency (ESA) put together this nifty video to explain exactly what their role may be in 5G adoption.

"Everybody is talking about 5G, the new generation of wireless communication. We are at the start of a revolution in connectivity for everything, everywhere, at all times. Space plays an important roll in this revolution. We need satellites to ensure businesses and citizens can benefit smoothly from 5G," reads the video's description.
