Japanese Academic Aviation Research Development Agency (JAXA) officially announced that this year officially launched the programs, including the launch detector and landing.
According to the plan,Japan will launch two small moon detectors in February this year: Equuleus will verify the use of rare fuel to fly to the moon, Omotenashi will verify landing technology.
Two detectors were developed by JAXA, Tokyo University, with a size of less than 40 cubic centimeters.
Due to the lack of independent large launch rockets,These two detectors will use American SLS large rocket launch.
This year, Japan will also transmit another detector SLIM. The goal is to exactly landing on the surface of the moon, and the error is controlled within 100 meters.
In the same period, Japan will first launchFreight spacecraft HTV-XThe international space station transports materials, and it is launched once a year in three years.
Next year, Japan will also use India to launch new moon detectors, go to the moonfront area, and explore the area that may have ice.
It is reported that Japan has reached four projects with the US Alta Misan Month Plan, which is to provide equipment for the Lunar Rail Space Station "Gateway" residential cabin, replenishment to "Portal" Space Station, share the month Face data, developed manned moon detectors.
In January 1990, Japan took the lead in breaking the US monopoly, successfully launched the "Fei Tian" moon detector, weighing 182 kg, used in the moon orbital environment detection, hitting the moon in 1993.
In 1996, Japan put forward the plan to build a permanent monthly base base, which is expected to invest more than 26 billion US dollars. In 30 years, the moon base is completed, and after the launch of the satellite failure, give up the monster plan.
In September 2007, Japan used the H-2A rocket to launch his first month's ball track detector "Moon Goddess", equipped with 15 precision instruments, with an unprecedented precision to comprehensively observe the moon, analyze the composition of mineochemical composition, mineral distribution , Surface characteristics, etc.
