The Japanese Space Agency (JAXA) reported on the successful launch of the Epsilon-4 carrier missile, which brought a satellite into orbit designed to organize the world’s first presentation from artificial colorful meteorite rain. Heavenly shows plan to spend in spring 2020 in Hiroshima.
On the morning of January 18, the rocket was launched from the Space Center of the School of School and carried seven satellites designed to demonstrate various
For this, the team uses the balls with a diameter of 2 cm, which, when entering the atmosphere, will burn very brightly. Researchers experimented with metals to achieve a flame of various colors, but the chemical composition is carefully hidden. Therefore, the show will be much more beautiful than natural meteoric rain.
The ALE satellite launched 500 km above the ground, but gradually it will drop to 400 km. The device will indicate in advance when and where it will be necessary to drop the cargo so that it adjusted the trajectory of movement and time. It carries 400 small balls, which should be enough for 20-30 submissions over the next year. In the summer, the company plans to withdraw another device. Two devices can be used separately or together to improve the presentation.
Artificial starfall will be safe, as the balls burn in a few seconds, long before they have time to fall low enough. The organizers say they chose Hiroshima for the first submission due to good weather, landscape and cultural property. If in the designated period of 2020, there will be frequent sky, then the innovative show will be able to see millions of people within 200 km2.
