Summary

China has built an artificial moon to further improve the study of the Moon on Earth itself. Earlier, China has also made the artificial sun.

Scope

In the 21st century, the year 2021 has been the most successful year for China so far. During this time China’s space program touched many new dimensions of success. After making an artificial Sun on Earth itself, China has now created an artificial Moon. Through this artificial moon, scientists will be able to investigate new equipment according to the conditions and environment there and prepare for future missions.
The artificial moon’s ‘first of its kind’ center, located in the eastern city of Xuzhou in Jiangsu province, will eliminate the force of gravity. This center can maintain an atmosphere of low gravity for as long as desired. This will also reduce the dependence of other countries on the zero-gravity training of Chinese astronauts. It will also be more capable of testing new rovers and technologies.
According to a report in the South China Morning Post, Li Ruilin
of the China University of Mining and Technology, who led the program, says that low-gravity conditions can be created in an aircraft or drop tower. But this condition is for a very short time. Whereas in this artificial moon simulator the effect of low gravity can be maintained for as long as desired.
This program is based on the experiments of this scientist,
Lee said that in some tests such as the Impact Test, such a condition is required for only a few seconds, but many other tests require such a condition for several days. Let us tell you that the origin of this idea is related to the experiments of Russian-born physicist Andre Geim, who fixed a frog in the air with the help of a magnet. He also received the Nobel Prize for this experiment.
China’s artificial moon is two feet in diameter
, according to information, the diameter of this artificial moon or ‘mini moon is about two feet. Its artificial surface is made of rocks and dust that are as light as those on the Moon. Here let us tell you that the gravitational force on the Moon is not zero. Here the force of gravity is 1/6 that of the earth. The Moon is the only natural satellite of the Earth and the difference in gravitational force is due to the magnetic field.
Very ambitious China’s space plans
China is about to complete the fourth phase of its moon exploration program. Under this program, the possibilities of setting up research stations on the Moon will be explored through future Change-6, Change-7, and Change-8 missions. Experts believe that this new achievement of China will play an important role in this ambitious program. China plans to launch the Change-7 spacecraft to the south pole of the Moon.
