Preparations to settle humans on the moon are going on in full swing. Along with NASA, private companies such as Tesla’s SpaceX are also working on a plan to send humans to the nearest moon on Earth. Now Japan too is gearing up to make its entry on the moon. Japan is going to send a small baseball-sized robot to the moon next year. (Japan will send baseball size robot to moon in 2022)
The space agency Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) is working closely with Japanese robotics company iSpace on this project. The HAKUTO-R lander will be used to send robots to the moon. The 3-inch robot will be placed in an ispace lander and sent to the moon.
The moon will draw pictures
This two-wheeled robot will take pictures of the moon’s surface and other things. After this, he will send the pictures back for review. JAXA said in its statement that this robot has a special feature, it will start walking on its own after reaching the surface. This will also reduce the things needed for transportation to the moon. Because of this, this robot can play an important role in other missions in the future as well.
Three countries have reached the moon so far
So far, only three countries (America, China and Russia) have reached the moon. Of these, only the American astronauts have been able to reach the moon’s surface. According to JAXA, this robot has been built by Sony, Doshiha University and Japanese internet development company Tommy. Tommy is well-known in Japan as a well-known toy-making company. The purpose of the Japanese space agency is to gather as much information as possible from other moon missions and the technology of private companies. ispace CEO and founder Takeshi Hakamada says that it is an honor for us that JAXA showed interest in our Chandrayaan Transportation Service. We are happy that we are going to be the first commercial service provider who will fulfill the government’s mission in Japan.
