Yutu-2 rover after successful Indian Chandrayann-1 mission, which was among the first spacecraft to show evidence of a water moon after mapping the surface between 2008 and 2009. Swiss Sweden called SARA (which covers acoustic acronym "sub KeV Atom Reflecting Analyzer") complies with this radiation flux surface . Scientists have come to understand how radiation around the moon, Wieser said, but what lacks calibrations from the surface to measure measurements on orbit.
The far side is another reason, Wieser explained.
"The distant side of the moon is much more sun than geometric reasons than it is close to," he wrote. "When the sun is near, then the moon is located inside the earth's magnetosphere, where the sun's wind is removed."
In other words, the far side of the moon gets more radiation than the nearest side, because the far side is less protected.
Yutu-2 operates a strange magnetic environment in the shelter area, in the South Pole-Aitken basin. The pool includes one of the largest craters in the whole solar system. The pool also has a strong magnetic field that affects the solar wind interacting on the surface. But exactly how the Swedish scholars should know this interaction, and because of this, they want to continue the Yutu-2 before it can. (His current life is for a year now).
Sweden is very active in the sphere of radiation, including the European Bepi-Colombo mission, which has just begun in Mercury. Mercury, like the moon, is a "airless" world that is full of regolith and craters. Thus, the study of the two worlds will give scientists some comparisons to see how or (or otherwise) the radiation environment works on the Moon and Mercury.
Chang & # 39; e-4 is the latest series of Chinese missions to explore the moon. The last place took place in 2013 when Chang & # 39; e-3 and its Rover Yutu were the first successful lunar fare excursion.
