ESA and China Space Agency Collaboration Detects Negative Ions on Dark Side of Moon

ESA and China Space Agency , Collaboration Detects Negative Ions , on Dark Side of Moon. China's Chang'e-6 lunar lander landed on the dark side of the Moon, successfully gathered samples and lifted off in just over 48 hours. . 'Futurism' reports that the historic feat resulted in the first-ever samples collected from the far side of the Moon, which permanently faces away from the Earth. The trip also saw the lander deposit several scientific payloads, including the Negative Ions at the Lunar Surface (NILS) instrument for the European Space Agency. This was ESA’s first activity on the surface of the Moon, a world-first scientifically, and a first lunar cooperation with China, Neil Melville, ESA’s technical officer for the experiment, via 'Futurism'. The moon's lack of a magnetic field makes the surface extremely vulnerable to charged solar particles, which create negatively charged ions. . Before it could make its observations, the NILS instrument had to be adjusted to the extreme lunar surface conditions, going through a cycle of reboots and blackouts. Once it adjusted, the instrument detected negative ions from solar winds bombarding the Moon's surface and successfully transmitted back usable data. We have collected an amount and quality of data far beyond our expectations, Neil Melville, ESA’s technical officer for the experiment, via 'Futurism'. 'Futurism' explains that the data could have significant implications for our understanding of how our celestial neighborhood deals without having a magnetic field. . These observations on the Moon will help us better understand the surface environment and act as a pathfinder to explore negative ion populations in other airless bodies in the Solar System, from planets to asteroids and other moons, Martin Wieser, NILS principal investigator, via 'Futurism'

China Raises Flag on the 'Dark Side' of the Moon [Video]

China Raises Flag on the 'Dark Side' of the Moon

China Raises Flag , on the 'Dark Side' , of the Moon. 'Newsweek' reports that for the first time in human history, China has begun the process of returning samples from the "dark side" of the moon to the Earth. . The Chang'e-6 craft reportedly raised a small Chinese flag after collecting the samples before ending its two-day mission on the moon's "dark side.". It is an impressive demonstration of Chinese technological capability, John Logsdon, professor emeritus at the George Washington University and founder of its Space Policy Institute, via 'Newsweek'. The "dark side" refers to the hemisphere of the moon that faces away from the Earth most of the time due to its synchronous rotation. John Logsdon, professor emeritus at the George Washington University and founder of its Space Policy Institute, says the samples could... . ... "determine whether the lunar far side is similar or dissimilar to the face of the moon that has been explored for over 50 years.". The Chang'e-6 landed at the moon's South Pole in the Aitken Basin, one of our solar system's largest impact craters. In order to communicate with the spacecraft, China used the Queqiao-2 relay satellite to transmit messages to vehicles on either side of the moon. The probe autonomously used a robotic arm to drill into the surface and gather the samples. . 'Newsweek' reports that the lander also carried three research instruments from European space agencies, including Italy's National Institute for Nuclear Physics. China's seventh Chang'e mission is scheduled to take place in 2026.
