Robot Station To Be Established By China On The Moon
According to a media report, China is intending to set up on the moon a robot station to perform larger and more intricate experimental explore on lunar geography. The station could cut the prices of getting the rock samples back to Earth, as stated by Jiao Weixin, a space science professor at the Peking University. He mentioned, a feasible robot station would improve the lunar geography research and “have enhanced energy competence than lunar rovers as much larger solar power generator can be installed by the station.”
The base can carry out larger, more intricate experiments and research said the space officials of the state-owned Global Times who declared the program at an international conference in Shanghai. The determined space program of China consisted of numerous manned missions, constructing an everlasting space station, and getting to Mars.
China, in favor of the lunar landing plan, will launch a carrier rocket for the first time with a 100-ton-plus freight by around 2030, as mentioned by the report. Lu Yu, Science and Technology Committee Director at the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology—branch of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation owned by the state—revealed the heavy-lift rocket schedule. China intends to alight the Chang’e-4 lunar study on the moon’s dark side in 2018, as mentioned by the report.
By next year, the Chang’e-5 probe will be set up, the final stage in the 3-step lunar study plan of China—orbit, alight, and return. Chang’e-5 will gather and bring back samples of rock to the Earth. Subsequently, China will commence 3 more assignments to study the south pole of the moon.
The foremost Mars probe of China is planned to be initiated by 2020 on a Long March 5 from the Wenchang Spacecraft Launch Site, Hainan Province of South China. The probe will optimistically orbit, alight, and set up a rover on Mars, the report mentioned.
