Wow!! China To Launch Artificial Moon 

China has announced that they are ready to launch an artificial moon into space with the goal of replacing streetlights in 2020.

According to Wu Chunfeng, the Chairman of space contractor Chengdu Aerospace Science and Technology Microelectronics System Research Institute Co (CASC), the device has been engineered to illuminate an area as large as 80km and functions by complementing the light of the moon at night.

He also noted that the device’s power of illuminating the Earth will be eight-times stronger than the one of the real moon.

Local news reports that the artificial moon’s light will be aimed at the city of Chengdu, in southwestern China.
