Breaking News: China to launch artificial Moon to Space in 2020

Artificial Moon

It might sound like a plot cooked up by a cartoon villain, but a city in southwestern China is aiming to launch into space an artificial moon that could replace streetlights by bathing the ground in a “dusk-like glow.”
City officials in Chengdu said they plan to launch the so-called illumination satellite in 2020, the Chinese news site Peoples Daily reported. The audacious plan was announced by Wu Chunfeng, chairman of the Chengdu Aerospace Science and Technology Microelectronics System Research Institute Co., a private company, at an Oct. 10 event in Chengdu.
Not much else is known about the illumination satellite, including its size or cost. It’s also unclear whether introducing another light source in the sky would adversely affect the local population or wildlife — perhaps by disrupting the daily light-dark cycle.
