PolyU Expert Makes First Space Tool for Lunar Exploration
Date:12/2/2013

(PRWEB) December 02, 2013

Following the launch of Chang’e-3 lunar probe in Xichang Satellite Launch Centre, the Camera Pointing System jointly developed by researchers of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) and China Academy of Space Technology (CAST) is now getting closer for landing on the moon’s surface. This sophisticated space tool which is carried on board of the spacecraft is the first Hong Kong-made and developed instrument being deployed for the country’s lunar exploration programme since its launch in 2007.

Joining this historical mission is Professor Yung Kai-leung, Associate Head of PolyU’s Department of Industrial and System Engineering, who is also an expert member appointed by China National Space Administration's Lunar Exploration Programme Centre for the third phase of China's lunar exploration programme. Professor Yung and his partner have a wealth of experience in making sophisticated space tools for different missions. These include the “Mars Rock Corer” for the European Space Agency’s 2003 Mars Express Mission, the Space Holinser Forceps for the then MIR Space Station, and the “Soil Preparation System” for the Sino-Russian Space Mission in 2011. All these space tools were made in the University’s well-equipped Industrial Centre.

China’s lunar exploration programme is broadly categorized into three phases by “Orbiting, Landing and Returning”. The first phase had already come to fruition, with both Chang’e-1 and Chang’e-2 satellites duly completing their mission. In the second phase, the Camera Pointing System developed by Professor Yung Kai-leung will be deployed for the current landing mission.

If the mission goes as planned, Chang’e-3 will first enter the orbit of the moon one day after the launch and then prepared for soft landing at 44.1° Latitude North of the moon, an area which is also known as Sinus Iridum or the “Bay of Rainbows”. After landing on the mo
