The second Moon. Why to China huge space lamp?


The artificial satellite, according to media, will appear in 2020 and will be nine times brighter than the real Moon. However experts doubt that the project technically we realize the Photo: Zuma/TASS in 2020 in the sky over China will appear one more Moon — artificial, writes "Renmin жибао". As reports the edition, the artificial satellite reflecting sunlight will be nine times brighter, than the real Moon. Thanks to it in some parts of the country need for lantern lighting has to disappear. Diameter of a light spot from the new Moon will be adjustable — from 10 to 80 kilometers. Among developers — the Chinese Institute of researches of microelectronic systems for space. Technical conditions for idea implementation as Chinese say, are already ready. At the same time they assure that light from the satellite will not disturb people and animals as its brightness will be approximately same, as in twilight. The main problems of the project of the artificial Moon — its high cost, complexity of a conclusion to an orbit and installation of mirrors and also their targeting taking into account the space debris flying in a terrestrial orbit. Technically the project is too expensive and almost impracticable, the research supervisor of Institute of space policy Ivan Moiseyev considers: — Nothing at them will leave. It is too big, unhandy design, so far such it is impossible to make. This moment, was many times discussed about six-seven years ago when the current head of Roskosmos started fulfillment of duties of the Deputy Prime Minister, it was his first offer — to light polar regions thus. It is technically impracticable — to develop a big, kilometer design, to stabilize it, to focus, constantly it is necessary to turn, fuel is spent, and besides there has to be rather rigid design. — Whether in some medium term it is possible that necessary technical solutions will be found? — To remove big weight, to spend big money for service of this weight in space, and it will light, say, polar regions — theoretically it can be made everything, but will rise in such money that polar bears who need it will not pay off. — Purely theoretically, if such project is carried out whether it it will be visible from the territory of Russia? — The directed beam on 80 kilometers is not visible. When the lamp shines, it it is visible from that place where it shines, and from it it is not visible any more. We will find it in situation from outside. The similar project is prepared for start by the SpaceX company. In November Falcon 9 will put to orbit an object from a heat-resistant film. At the height of 560 kilometers it will be developed and will get a stele form. This mini-satellite about 30 meters long will shine in the night sky, reflecting sunlight. Does not pursue any practical aim of SpaceX: the company positions the child only as an art object. The project worth a little more than one million dollars is realized on private donations. It will be possible to see a lunar stele with the naked eye. However, it is rather short: it will flicker only about three months. Then орб
