Chineses Might Have An Artificial Moon On Their Own By 2020

An artificial moon is going to be launched in China by 2020. This artificial satellite is eight times brighter than our real moon.

According to a report on the state media last Friday, an artificial moon is being planned to be launched by 2020 in China. This is a project developed by Chengdu, a Chinese city located in the southwest of the country’s province Sichuan.

Chengdu wants to create an artificial moon called "illumination satellites" which could shine along with the real moon. However, the important difference between these two moons is that Chengdu’s satellite is promised to shine brighter than the real moon up to eight times.

With its impressive mission, the Chinese artificial moon is aimed at reducing the electricity consuming and replacing streetlamps in urban areas of the country.

Xichang Satellite Launch Center is planning to launch the first man-made moon in China. After successfully launching this satellite, the organization will be in charge of the project to bring the other three new moon into use in 2022.

This was the information which head of the Tian Fu Area Science Society organization Wu Chunfeng shared with the media recently.

Wu announced the city’s project at a conference of entrepreneurship and innovation held on October 10 in Chengdu. Answered in an interview with China Daily, Wu said that the satellites launched later have a great potential of improving civilization life.

The first launch will be the experimentation for Tian Fu to analyze their fabrication, therefore continue to develop those satellites remaining.

Tian Fu’s satellites work as an artificial moon by reflecting the sun’s light. With the strong reflection, the satellite is promised to replace all the lamps located on the streets in urban areas. If this artificial moon reaches the area of illumination of 50 square kilometers, Chengdu city could save nearly 170 million USD every year in costs of electricity.

On the other hand, Wu added that the satellites’ shining will also have the ability to support rescue processes in disaster areas if there is any power outage.
