China aims to install surveillance system on the Moon

Skynet will play a crucial role in safeguarding the lunar base by scrutinizing its surroundings with unparalleled precision.

China’s ambitious plans to establish a substantial lunar base have captured the world’s attention, surpassing even the grandeur of Disneyland. With meticulous planning and cutting-edge technology, China aims to build a lunar station that will serve as a beacon of human exploration and scientific advancement.

Fortifying the Foundation

At the heart of this lunar project lies the Skynet surveillance system, renowned for its comprehensive monitoring capabilities across the nation. With over 600 million cameras, Skynet will play a crucial role in safeguarding the lunar base by scrutinizing its surroundings with unparalleled precision. Equipped with advanced artificial intelligence, Skynet will identify, track, and target any suspicious activities within the International Lunar Research Station, ensuring the safety and security of personnel and resources.

Responding to Abnormalities 

The Chinese Academy of Sciences, China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, and Zhejiang University have outlined a proactive approach to handling abnormalities detected by the surveillance system. In the event of any detected anomalies, the system will generate alarm signals and initiate appropriate response measures. While specifics on these measures remain undisclosed, the emphasis on swift and decisive action underscores China’s commitment to the safety and success of its lunar endeavors.

Vision Unfolds 

The proposed International Lunar Research Station is set to be a marvel of engineering and innovation, with plans for a sprawling four-mile radius. Housing vital facilities such as a command center, power station, communication hub, and extensive research facilities, the station will serve as a hub for scientific exploration and collaboration. Construction is slated to begin within the coming years, with an initial setup utilizing moon soil targeted for completion by 2028.

Innovative Technologies 

To further bolster their lunar ambitions, Chinese experts led by Ding Lieyun from the Chinese Academy of Engineering are developing innovative technologies like the “Chinese Super Masons” robot. Tasked with forming bricks from lunar soil, this robotic marvel represents a pivotal step towards constructing habitable structures on the moon. Despite the challenges posed by the lunar environment, Ding remains optimistic about the future of lunar habitation, emphasizing the importance of long-term exploration and the eventual realization of lunar habitats.
