"The first satellite will be mainly experimental, but the following three "moons" that can be run to 2022, will have great commercial potential", said Chunfeng. I graduated Phi Beta Kappa with Honors from the University of MI and had a master of arts from Columbia University's School of Journalism.
Chengdu city people are waiting for the satellite to start tourism in the city.
China is set to launch a fake "moon" into space to help light up the biggest cities in the country.
Mr Wu said lighting from the artificial moon covering 50 square kilometres in Chengdu could save about 1.2 billion yuan ($240 million) in electricity costs every year. If the project proves successful, it could be joined by three more additions to the night sky in 2022, he said.
This "fake moon," which is really a sophisticated "solar mirror", will be placed in a geosynchronous orbit so that it will hover only over Chengdu.
Syromyatnikov wanted solar sails to redirect sunlight back towards the Earth, and in 1993 he got his chance to put Znamya to the test. Measuring 65-foot-wide, the sheet of mylar was unfurled on the night of February 4, 1993, it directed a beam of light about two or three times as bright as the moon and two-and-a-half miles wide down to Earth's night sky, passing across the Atlantic ocean, over Europe, and into Russian Federation, reports said. The artificial moon, which will enhance the Moon's natural night illumination and may render conventional street illumination unnecessary, can illuminate a range of ten to 80 kilometers in diameter. The US explored the idea, and the 1990's the Soviet Union attempted to launch the Znamya (or Banner) satellite into orbit. Citing the imagined French necklace of mirrors as the impetus for the project, Chunfeng explained that the technology behind the satellite has been in the testing phase for years but is finally near completion.
Regarding concerns about the Chinese artificial moon interfering with astronomical observations or disrupting animals that are active at night, Kang Weimin, the director of the Institute of Optics of the Harbin Institute of Technology in China, said that the light would amount to only a "dusk-like glow", PDO reported.
