CHINA’S ARTIFICIAL MOON

In this blog I’ll be mentioning about a country which has the highest number of population and assumed to be the creator of Covid-19.

Expecting you have already predicted the country its China.

I guess you have come across a news which stated that China has created the first artificial Sun, for 20 seconds, this sun also achieved a peak temperature that is over ten times the sun’s.

Not this much after creating Covid Covid-19, world’s hottest Sun now this country has made an artificial moon.

The artificial moon research facility is scheduled for official launch in the year 2022. It will use powerful magnetic fields inside a vacuum chamber of 2-foot-diameter, for making gravity disappear. To develop this research facility, scientists were inspired by a previous experiment, in which magnets were used to levitate a frog.

The research facility is first of its kind research facility in the world. It will be filled with rocks and dust to resemble it with the lunar surface.

It is capable of maintaining low-gravity conditions for as long as scientists want.

Chinese scientists got inspired to develop this facility from “Andre Geim”, who is a physicist at University of Manchester in U.K. He won “satirical Ig Nobel Prize in 2000” for conducting an experiment in which a frog was made to float with a magnet. The levitation trick used in his experiment comes from an effect dubbed as “diamagnetic levitation”. Same trick is being used in “Artificial Moon research facility”.

The first man-made moon will launch from Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Sichuan, with three more to follow in 2022 if the first test goes well, said Wu Chunfeng, head of Tian Fu New Area Science Society, the organization responsible for the project.

By reflecting light from the sun, the satellites could replace Street lamps in urban areas, saving an estimated 1.2 billion yuan ($170 million) a year in electricity costs for Chengdu, if the man-made moons illuminate an area of 50 square kilometers. The extraterrestrial source of light could also help rescue efforts in disaster zones during blackouts.
