A city in China is planning to launch an ‘artificial moon’ that will light up the skies as far as 50 miles around.

The so-called illumination satellite set to deploy over the southwestern city of Chengdu in 2020 is touted to be eight times as bright as the real moon, to cast a ‘dusk-like glow’ over the region, according to the People’s Daily.

Officials have released few details on the project.

Wu Chunfend, chairman of Chengdu Aerospace Science and Technology Microelectronics System Research Institute Co., Ltd, revealed the plan at an event in the city in October, People’s Daily reports.


It will complement the moon to make Chengu’s night skies brighter when it launches in 2020, potentially serving as a replacement to conventional streetlights.


The artificial moon can be controlled to light up an area between 10 and 80 kilometers wide 6 to 50 miles.

........the illumination satellite will be eight times as bright as the actual moon. But he also emphasized that it has been designed to “complement the moon at night.” On Earth, its presence will appear as a “dusk-like glow” that can light an area with a diameter of close to 50 miles.


GOOD WAY TO GO....
Technology is bae.

Great countries are making great advances in technology. I don't know if Africa is cursed. Our youths are either screaming Sai Baba or Atikulate while our counterparts are making breakthrough in so many fields.

Whereas our leaders are busy trying to sell off TCN if possible...

I don't know why they cannot appreciate good thing. They travel abroad, see development and love it but cannot replicate it here.

If we continue trading our oil solely for money, we'll continue to remain underdeveloped because the money is going to the pocket of our corrupt leaders.

How about giving these technologically advanced countries our oil and collecting their technology?

Beautiful China kiss

Anybody dreaming of that for Nigeria in this generation is on a loooooooong thing! We do not have and will not have world class institutions and research centers for our national development. And it's not in the pipeline! Ask the current politicians their mandate and you will see they have no plans. So dream not.

BTW, the penalty for embezzelement of public funds in China is death!
