China Plans To Launch A Fake Moon Into Space To Replace Streetlights

China has big plans to launch an artificial moon into space in order to light up cities.  The plan is supposed to replace the streetlights in the south-western city of Chengdu by 2020.

Chinese scientists actually plan to install three artificial moons by 2022, according to ABC News.  The illuminated satellite will be designed to complement the moon at night while saving hundreds of millions of dollars each year in electricity costs. The moons will be made from a reflective material are designed to complement the moon at night.

Wu Chunfeng, the chairman of Chengdu Aerospace Science and Technology Microelectronics System Research Institute Corporation which developed the project, said the illuminating satellites would provide a “dusk-like glow,” decreasing the need for energy consumption. “The satellites’ brightness and service time are both adjustable, and the accuracy of the lighting can be controlled within tens of meters,” Wu told the Chinese state media agency earlier.  Wu added the three artificial moons would operate alternately in order to significantly reduce infrastructural electricity consumption, especially during winter.

According to Inverse, in response to reporters’ concerns that the artificial light would disturb astronomical observations, Kang Weimin, Ph.D., the director of the Institute of Optics at the Harbin Institute of Technology, said that the artificial moonlight is the equivalent of a bright evening and not enough to cause any harm to any biological systems.

It’s not clear as of yet, whether the project is being paid for by the city or the Chinese government, The Guardian reports.  China’s space program has matured rapidly since 2015, and the country plans on doubling the number of launches it conducted in 2017 in the coming years. While this artificial moon project sounds like science fiction, something similar has been attempted before by Russia.

In 1993, Russia launched its own illumination mechanism, called a space mirror, in an effort to increase the length of the day. It used a giant sheet of plastic attached to a spacecraft to reflect sunlight back down to Earth. For a moment, the device did direct a beam of light down into Russia, but for people on Earth, it only looked like the bright pulse of a star.

  1. A space mirror could start a fire. Too much light disturbs sleep, upsets wildlife, and interferes with star gazing and astronomical navigation. But progress comes at a price. For everything gained, something is lost. We shall see, or won’t we.

      B,
      They took a note from the Nazi spot lights to light up an entire city when they revolt. Or literally “light up” an entire city. And antfa loves their tactics. Total control. After years humans will be night blind and militarys use of night vision will allow hunting human sheep easier at night. No more dissdents. Total control. Oh and they dont want anyone looking up because there is way too much happening up there for the sheep to visualize whats coming……

    THAT’S NO MOON!

  3. Sam Adams says:

    Ya right! More like a battle station. That is why Trump is creating the Space Force.

  4. Beaumont says:

    As traditional lanterns would probably be most efficient, I’m suspicious that it’s a bureaucratic money pit, or that Red Communists are taking credit for space weather, as their own personal achievement.

  5. WilliamtheResolute says:

    You mean another fake moon…?

  6. marlene says:

    China, the global imperialist, not only intends to circle the globe with its own specially-made satellite surveillance system, but now it seems it intends to own everything else in the skies as well. China is a clear and present danger to all of us.

    • Kevin2 says:

      “China, the global imperialist”

      They’re attempting to unseat the USA who currently hold and has held that position.

      “China is a clear and present danger to all of us.”

      Have a self sufficient nation, high technology, nuclear weapons, a powerful navy and two seas and you fear no nation.

    Given that China is the manufacturing capital of LED lights, which are cheap, very bright, and highly energy efficient, its hard to imagine that three artificial moons are really necessary.

    I suspect that this is a cover story for a more nefarious use of these objects; whether they are designed to cover up nibiru & its system, or whether they are designed as a weapon of some kind, I don’t know, but time will tell. 🙂

  8. Stuart says:

    Someone needs to tell these silly gooks that the moon is really bigger than your thumbnail. Replicating it is pretty difficult.
    It will be fun to watch them try though.

  9. Park Mero says:

    China needs to leave sh*t alone already.

  10. The city of Chengdu, with more than 10 million inhabitants, will send a lighting satellite “artificial moon” into space in 2020 that will offer the city a lighting power “eight times higher than the original moon”. The objective of this fake moon is to replace street lamps, save electricity and millions of dollars
