Earth still haunted small star which is likely to fall at any time and destroy humanity, To protect the planet, China ambitious to take advantage of Moon as a dam.
For a long time, the threat of asteroids that could destroy Earth has been a matter of debate. The fall of a space object to Earth has the potential to cause chaos, even to an absolute level.
The fear of an asteroid impact is reflected in the extinction of the dinosaurs due to a large asteroid strike in about 65 million years.
The risk of dinosaur disappearances occurring again is quite low, as about 60% of asteroids large enough to destroy an entire nation have not been tracked. because of a major incident small star This was the last 1970s on Earth.
so as a precaution China There are ideas that are ambitious in saving the earth from these dangers, namely by creating Moon Defense post.
To do so, Mashable, quoted from Wednesday (27/7/2022), China will build two optical telescopes and place them in the Moon’s north and south polar hemispheres. Later, the telescope scans the surroundings, finding if there are asteroids or celestial bodies that threaten Earth.
In addition, China will also deploy three guard satellites in the Moon’s orbit around the Earth. The spacecraft is equipped with several kinetic weapons, so if a dangerous asteroid is detected, this satellite can do its job.
Wu Weiren, chief designer of China’s Lunar Exploration Program, said, “It will have the ability to intercept asteroids coming from all directions, and it will form a defensive circle twice the size between the Moon and Earth, with a diameter of about 800,000 km.” can make.”
Currently, the scheme is still in the development stage. However, the system will include a giant telescope and a radar system located both on the ground and in the outer atmosphere.
With the opening of the guarding mission Earth hack. From small star indicating that China Rapidly grown into a formidable space force in recent years.
