Chinese scientists have created a moon-like gravity satellite, designed to help them prepare astronauts for future exploration missions. The simulator is located in Xuzhou in Jiangsu Province, China, and is designed in such a way that gravity can disappear.

According to the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, at the present time, simulating low gravity on the ground requires flying in a plane that enters a state of free fall, and then climbing again or falling from a landing tower, but this lasts for minutes.

The developers explained that the technology for simulating the new moon, a small 2-foot room sitting in a vacuum chamber, can simulate low or zero gravity for as long as you want.

Also, inside the 2-foot-high chamber, they created a lunar landscape, made of rocks and light dust like those on the moon’s surface.

The gravitational force on the Moon is one sixth of the force on Earth, and inside the artificial gravity chamber, the team uses a strong magnetic field to simulate the effects of low-grade gravitational flyby.

“Some experiments like the impact test only need a few seconds,” said senior scientist Li Ruilin, from China University of Mining and Technology. The concept of using magnetic fields to rise came from Russian physicist Andrei Geim, who won the Ig Nobel Prize in 2000.

He told the South China Morning Post he was pleased to see his educational experiences lead to applications in space exploration, explaining that magnetic levitation is not the same as antigravity.

However, he said there are cases where simulating microgravity using magnetic fields can be invaluable.

It is worth noting that China has set the goal of sending astronauts to the moon by 2030, and has established a base on the moon, in a joint project with Russia by the end of this decade, and this satellite is expected to play an important role in future missions to the moon, allowing scientists to plan exercises And prepare to build in low gravity.
