After more than a year, finally we waited for the publication of sensational quality images from the mission lander and rover Change-4, which explore the invisible part of our planet’s surface lunar. Look at your eyes and enjoy.
Chinese Space Agency (CNSA) published dozens of gigabytes of data gathered over the past months by the Yutu rover and lander 2-Change-4. Among them they are not only research data, but also beautiful photographs, obtained from cameras installed on both devices.
Data is so much that their revision will take some time, but we can expect in the near future publication of photographs even more interesting when the work will be the exploration of space enthusiasts who bother to their analysis.
Yutu rover-2 from January 2019 years have already passed a total of 300 meters of the surface of our planet’s natural satellite. On his way there are interesting objects, which the robot took a closer look. Among them are traces of a giant catastrophe that took place billions of years ago on the moon. Thanks confirmed their theories as to the turbulent history of the Silver Globe.
The vehicle also photographed several craters and stumbled on his way to a strange, gelatinous substance. Initially, scientists thought that they are dealing with cosmic molten rock, but now lean toward the theory that it is melted minerals, escaped to the surface of the Moon at the landing site of Chinese equipment by a meteorite impact.
Chinese scientists, as usual, are not too effusive when it comes to information on the research carried out by the device. But because of published data, something on this issue is beginning to change for the better. The government does not hide that he wants as quickly as possible to build the first colonies on the moon and to grow edible plants in them, and also have access to water ice, fuel and create a foundation to start mining the cosmic era.
The Middle Kingdom later this year, will send a mission to the moon as part of a research program Chang’e. In addition to the colony, the government is most interested in deposits of the isotope helium-3. We can safely say that on Earth occurs in trace amounts, because it is only 10 kilograms, so in this respect is very expensive. Just 1 gram costs 100 thousand.
Meanwhile, the Moon is plenty of it. It is estimated that it may be there as much as 5 million tons. Helium-3 is the future of energy. Only 250 tons of helium-3 can throughout the year to meet energy United States. It allows us to create incredibly efficient nuclear fusion reactors and secure ecological, cheap and virtually limitless source of energy for thousands of years Tech Upgrade.
