Laser rays beaming to moon experiment now succeed

  • A special wave sent came back from moon

  • Successful in covering a lot of distance in terms of

  • Laser beam reflected with the help of lunar orbiters

  • Now only one tenth part of beam to the moon is returning

Ranchi: Laser rays beaming towards moon is now successful. Not only it reached

there but it also came back from moon as directed by the research team. Along

with astronomy on laser rays, a lot of work is going on in defense science as well.

Talking about defense science, especially now that defense scientists are making

steady progress in the direction of making such laser-based weapons, then they

can aim accurately at a target far away. In this direction, the speed and efficiency

of laser rays have been assessed for the first time. Scientists had sent special laser

rays from the Earth directly to the moon, which have returned unchanged after

hitting a special device kept there. It has been proved that certain types of laser

rays can at least cover such a distance. According to scientific estimates, the

distance of the moon from the Earth is estimated at 3,84,400 kilometers.

Laser rays traveled a lot of distance

According to the details of the research by the scientists associated with this

research, according to this research, the laser rays were sent to the moon from a

lunar laser ranging station in France. The laser rays were focused on a device

directly connected to the LRO involved in the research of the moon. This device

was designed in such a way that it reflected the laser beam coming from the earth

towards the moon. Something similar happened in the experiment and he was

able to send the returning ray after hitting the moon again to the Earth Station

established on Earth. It has now been reported that significant success has been

achieved under this research that has been going on for many decades. Actually,

the surface from which these laser rays have collided and returned, it is like a

normal book on the moon. This can explain how strong the speed of laser rays

and the stability of reaching the target can be.

Nasa and French scientists carried out the experiment

The research was conducted by NASA scientists together with a team of French

scientists. NASA’s Lunar Orbiter has been involved in moon research since 2009.

NASA has placed a device on this passenger, which can eclipse and reflect laser

rays. To confirm the arrival of this laser beam on the moon, the work of using

solar panels left there under earlier lunar missions there. But in earlier

experiments, these solar panels were returning very weak waves, which were not

possible to be used scientifically. This technique has been tried since the time of

the Apollo lunar expedition. Instead of sending laser rays directly to the moon,

the results of sending and receiving reflected rays through the lunar orbiter have

been good. The laser rays returned by hitting the moon through this are in a very

strong state, which can be scientifically analyzed and used. But this journey of

laser rays over such a distance has proved that these laser rays will play a major

role in future astronomy as well as in defense management, which will be able to

aim accurately to a remote target and also in space.

Now this can also be used as weapon

Due to the continuous use of this experiment, scientists have now reached the

conclusion that the moon and the earth are moving away from each other.

However, the speed of this distance is very slow and averages 3.8 centimeters a

year. Nevertheless, it is being discovered that the force of gravitation is 

stretching between the two. Giving information about this research on August 7,

the scientist associated with this research, Irvan Mazariko, has said that much

more work remains to be done on the achievement of these rays. According to

him, the laser rays which are now hitting the moon and returning, they are trying

to understand why they are one-tenth of the laser rays sent.
