Gravitas: Russia and China want to build a space station on the moon
Chinese scientists have shared the news that their device — solar radioheliograph will be the key to cooperation with the United States. The device will work with NASA’s recently launched Parker Solar probe. Its main task will be to help American colleagues in the study of the Sun..
The China Spectral Radioheliograph (CSRH), built in the quiet region of inner Mongolia in northern China, Minantu, consists of 100 antennas with different frequency spectra covering an area of about 10 square kilometers. The device can capture solar energy for further study in their wide spectrum.
According to Ian Ihua, President of the Sun and Heliosphere Research Division International Astronomical Union, the observation range of the CSRH and the Parker solar probe will overlap, and these devices will collaborate in the future to address specific scientific challenges. In his public address, Yang Yihua also noted: «Data from both parties can confirm and complement each other».
NASA Parker Solar Probe — the fastest space probe in history. Today it carries out a mission to study the Sun at the closest possible distance, significantly surpassing any other aircraft for space exploration. During its seven-year service life, the probe will make 24 flights around the star. The work will be carried out within a radius of 6.1 million km from the surface of the Sun at the maximum approximation.
Joint work in the field of space exploration and its study is almost the only link between the countries. Earlier we wrote that in response to US sanctions, China threatened to impose duties on 85% of imports..
