Pakistan will hold China’s hand and land directly on the moon, sent its satellite through Chang’e-6 Mission

Pakistan’s restlessness was troubling it after the success of India’s Chandrayaan. Pakistan was staring at China’s door with the hope that China would hold its hand and land it directly on the moon. Now this dream of Pakistan is about to be fulfilled. After India’s Chandrayaan 3 mission, now China has launched its Moon mission. The name of this mission is Changa-6 mission and Pakistan’s IQub-Q satellite is installed in it. This satellite has 2 cameras, which will take pictures of the lunar surface. This Chinese mission will remain on the moon for 53 days, that is, it will return to Earth on June 25. According to Global Times, the goal of this mission is to go to the far side of the moon (where it is dark) and collect samples and send them to Earth.

Pakistan first extended its hands and asked for help from China to build satellite. When the satellite was built, Pakistan again sought help to send the satellite into the lunar orbit. China allowed Pakistani satellite to be carried on its rocket for free. After this, Pakistan asked for permission to use China’s control system to contact the satellite. If China’s Moon mission is successful after so many efforts, then Pakistanis will proudly say that they have conquered the Moon with the help of their begging and help. No country in the world has been able to do this. This will be a unique record in itself.

What is so unique about this mission?

A notable aspect of this mission is the inclusion of the CubeSat satellite, IQube-Q, developed by IST. CubeSats are miniature satellites known for their small size and standardized design. These satellites play an important role in facilitating scientific research, technology development and educational initiatives in space exploration. Despite their small size, CubeSats provide valuable opportunities for universities, research institutes and commercial entities to participate in space missions and gather data essential to scientific advancement, Dawn reports. The ICUBE-Q orbiter will carry two optical cameras to image the lunar surface. In 2022, the China National Space Administration (CNSA) through the Asia Pacific Space Cooperation Organization (APSCO) offered an exclusive opportunity to member countries to include a student-built payload on the Chang’e 6 mission to the Moon. Pakistan’s ICUBE-Q was selected. China’s Chang’e 6 mission is the next step in its carefully planned Moon mission program.
