The US Aeronautical Administration may be undertaking the construction of an ultra-longwave radio telescope in one of the craters on the opposite side of the moon.
According to the NASA press service, such a project was proposed in 2018, all this time it was finalized for a grant.
The Moon Crater (LCRT) radio telescope, using a lunar screen that covers the apparatus from any radio interference from Earth, the sun, and satellites during the lunar night, “will be able to make huge discoveries in cosmology, observing the early Universe at 10- 50 m (6-30 MHz). “
By design, DuAxel automatic rovers will deploy 3-5 km of wire mesh about 1 km in diameter in the crater with a suspended receiver in the center. The project is part of the Innovative Advanced Concepts program, where NASA collects futuristic concepts. It takes nine months to develop the documentation.
Earlier, the NASA space agency announced the launch of a new strategy for the development of the moon, which involves the involvement of international and commercial partners. NASA also called the date of the landing of man on Mars.
US President Donald Trump has instructed NASA to send an American expedition to the moon by 2024 at any cost.
