Composition.


Different from the exploration of lunar satellites in the past, Longjiang No. 2 will become the world's first microsatellite that independently completes the diurnal transfer, near-month braking, and monthly flight. China Aerospace is also creating new human lunar exploration records. It provides a new idea for other small countries to explore the moon, because the total weight of the Longjiang-2 satellite is only 47 kilograms, the relative cost is relatively low, and the original scheduled activity time of the satellite is about 1 year, but the actual activity time has reached 437 days.
