  • China to launch fake 'moon' into space to light up city

Now, the southwestern city of Chengdu hopes to launch an illumination satellite functioning as an artificial moon by 2020.

According to him, this satellite would produce at least eight times more light than the real moon.

The fake moon was dreamed up by Wu Chunfeng, the chairman of private space contractor Chengdu Aerospace Science and Technology Microelectronics System Research Institute Co (Casc), which is the main contractor of China's space program. I graduated Phi Beta Kappa with Honors from the University of MI and had a master of arts from Columbia University's School of Journalism.

The illuminated satellite is created to complement the moon and will be made of reflective material to reflect sunlight to earth.

China is aiming to introduce the artificial moon by 2020, the moon has the capability of lightening up the skies as far as fifty miles around.

China's space industry is preparing to launch the world's first artificial moon to help with urban illumination at night, a leading scientist said.

If the launch of this moon is successful, three more could follow in 2022, Wu told China Daily.

Scientists are concerned about the moon's effect on the wildlife and the Earth's atmosphere.

He said "that the light of the satellite is similar to a dusk-like glow, so it should not affect animals" routines'. The imitation celestial body - essentially an illuminated satellite - will bear a reflective coating to cast sunlight back to Earth, where it will supplement streetlights at night. Opposition to an artificial moon There is a lot of opposition to messing with the rhythm of light and dark, or circadian rhythms in man and animals. "Its expected brightness, in the eyes of humans, is around one-fifth of normal streetlights", he said, adding that it could even assist emergency services during blackouts and natural disasters. When a man-made moon is orbiting, people can only see a bright star in the sky.

Another Russian attempt to launch a space mirror in 1999 fizzled before it got off the ground, according to The Guardian. The scheme used a device known as the Znamya 2, which was equipped with a 25-meter mirror to illuminate a three-mile radius of land.
