China is focusing more in the space mission. The country has introduced the prime X-ray space telescope that is intended to monitor pulsars, black holes, and gamma-ray bursts in the space. According to the State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for national Defense, China will be launching four more probes into space before the year 2021 as the nation makes efforts to immerse into space science.
A satellite sponsored by the China-Italy Electromagnetic Monitoring Experiment Satellite will be used to investigate the causes of earthquakes and it is set to be officially launched in August this year. Also, another satellite owned by China-France Oceanography will be used to carry out studies on the ocean-surface waves and wind speed. The study will commence the next year.
The data collected is anticipated to improve the ocean waves forecast and increase the prevention mechanisms for calamities and disasters. Another satellite developed by both France and China will be introduced in 2021 to survey the gamma rays and offer the essential data that would be used to understand the dark energy and evolution history revolving around the universe.
The China’s first mission on Mars is also supposed to launch by 2020. The study will focus on examining the orbiting and the roaming discovery found on Red Planet. According to Wu Yanhua of the National Space Administration, the first mission to Mars will subsequently be followed by another mission that will entail collection of samples from the surface of the Mars.
The four anticipated probes are the China’s most mega undertaking for its space mission after the launch of the first X-ray space telescope. China is considering even more plans to the space. In the future, the country will launch more probes for lunar mission and Jupiter systems. If the missions are undertaken, China will be the first to survey the dark side of the Earth’s satellite world.
China is set to actively get involved in the discoveries in unique areas including the lunar and Mars studies in space and other space environments. The country is determined to achieve more for being the late-comer in the universal space race.
