Pakistan on moon; The Moon Beckons: I Cube Qamar’s Historic Journey

Pakistan on Moon, ‘iCube Qamar’, has left for the journey the moon. The satellite mission was launched from China’s Henan Space Launch Site to travel to the moon.

The opportunity to congratulate the country and its scientists and said that the “ICube Qamar” satellite is Pakistan on moon, “just like in the nuclear field.

This is the field where our scientists, engineers, and technicians use their skills,” he said. Space Technology Institute board member Dr. Khurram Khurshid.

The entire team, including Sparco and especially the students who participated in the project,. He said that the recognition of Pakistan’s plan by eight countries is the recognition of our scientists and experts, and this is an important moment in the development of science and technology. 

Enter a new era He said that this achievement will increase Pakistan’s capacity in satellite communications, create new opportunities in terms of science, business, and national security, and have the capability to reach of Pakistan on moon. 

Pakistan on Moon

Last year, a professor from the Space Technology Institute (IST) in Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, asked the international organization “EPSCO” if Pakistan would launch a satellite into lunar orbit.   

The response was positive, and little hope was given. Now, the result of this thought is that Pakistan can join the countries that have placed satellites on the stars with the help of China. 

So how did this project start with the idea of sending mission Pakistan on Moon?

How did Pakistani scientists prepare this satellite in such a short time? and possible Pakistan on moon.

The story begins in 2022, when the China National Space Administration (CNSA) offers its members a special opportunity to enter the stars for free through the Asia-Pacific Space Agency. 

The Asia-Pacific Space Companies Organization (APSCO) was established in 2008 to promote space exploration in the region. Epsco members include Pakistan, Bangladesh, China, Iran, Peru, South Korea, Thailand, and Turkey. 

Islamabad Institute of Space Technology (IST) prepared a proposal and submitted it to Epsco. The proposal was approved, and the IST program was subsequently carried out with the support of Pakistan Space Research Organization SPARCO. 

The team, which included students from various disciplines, began to examine the satellite. Thus, after approximately two years of intensive work,.

The “Icube Qamar” satellite was completed. According to research by journalist Katharina Bukols, who works at the Statista office, the lunar orbit and orbit of six countries, including the United States,

The former Soviet Union (now Russia), China, Japan, India, and the European Union. The Moon landing spacecraft was launched, or they sent their work somewhere near there. 

In addition, South Korea, Luxembourg, and Italy are entering the stars with the help of American and Chinese rockets.

Pakistan has now joined the list and entered the list of countries. Pakistan on moon mission will be successful.

Let’s see how the satellite sent by Pakistan will work in this mission and possible Pakistan on Moon, what is built into it, and what problems the production team encountered during the preparation phase. 

Why is this satellite called ICUBE Qamar?

My name is Dr. Khurram. Since this target goes to the moon, it has “Qamar” with the moon on it. 

Based on IST’s small satellite program called ‘iCube’, the institute launched its first satellite called ‘iCube in 2013.

Dr. Khurram Khurshid is a professor and a member of the IQQ team at the Institute of Space Technology.

The final design of the satellite was a collaboration between China’s Shanghai University and Pakistan’s national line and SPARCO organisation. 

It’s already over He added that “iCube Q” is equipped with two optical cameras to take photos of the moon. After the completion of the testing and qualification phase, “iCube Q” will be added to China’s “Cheng-6” project. 

After the completion of the testing and qualification phase, “iCube Q” will be connected to China’s “Cheng-6” project. It is worth noting that “Cheng-6” is the sixth target in China’s lunar observation series. 

China’s Chang’e-6 mission aims to collect samples from the asteroid and return them to Earth. Here, scientists will study them to learn more about the moon’s layout, history, and design. 

Pakistan on Moon

According to the information on the IST website, the project is generally divided into three parts. One of them is the seat cube, which we will tell you about later, and the separation machine.

The machine used to separate the ICube Qamar from the Cheng 6 and the mounting bracket. Besides the two optical cameras, there is also a 12-volt battery with a design life of three months and two solar panels. 

There are anti-wheels, star sensors, and sun sensors. It is also equipped with communication with a data transfer rate of 1 KB per second. 

Chapter Dr. Khurram’s team had little time to build the satellite and had to purchase the necessary materials for the satellite from outside, which caused some delays in their arrival in Pakistan. 

“Since time is short, we must work together to achieve anything,” said Dr. Khurram. Additionally, students from various engineering departments of IST, such as Electrical, Materials Science, Avionics, Aerospace, Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science, are also taking part in this project.

Professor Dr. Khurram Khurshid said that this project is very important for Pakistani students who want to be successful in this field. 

Dr. Khurram said SPARCO has been making continuous efforts in Pakistan, but students entering the field are not specifically accredited, and their opportunities in Pakistan are very limited. 

Pakistan on Moon

Dr. Khurram said, “The CubeSats produced by IST are cube-shaped, small in size, efficient, and will not impose a burden on a developing country like Pakistan.”. “These satellites weigh no more than a few kilograms, and ‘Icube Q’ weighs approximately six kilograms.” 

Dr., regarding the purpose of sending “IQBQ” into space, “With its help, we will be able to carry out scientific research, technological development, and scientific education related to space exploration. 

Pakistan also has its own lunar satellite image for research. What is a “cube satellite”?  is an assistant in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Michigan State University,” said Khurram. 

Maher Al-Nasa, an associate professor, told that “Cubesat” is a small satellite weighing just a few kilos. 

Equipped with various sensors and cameras, it enters the area and collects data. The 4,444 CubeSats orbiting the moon “could take pictures or record other signals and send them back to Earth,” he said. He said that technology is very cheap. 

Professor Maher Al-Nisa said that this will enable Pakistani researchers and students to collaborate with Chinese experts in the field of research and make it possible for Pakistan on moon.

However, he said that cooperation with other countries in space research is a “baby step” (first step), but “in the long term.

We cannot change planning and invest in ourselves.” “People need to believe that there is a need to invest in science and technology and that there can be room for research with limited resources.” 

On the other hand, experts on SPARCO told: “IQBQ’s mission will last three months and during this time it will send images of the moon and changes in the lunar climate to the Central Institute of Space Technologies.” “It will remain in the void. He added that these services are very important for Pakistani youth in this field. 

“The small steps we take will lead us to success [in space exploration] tomorrow.” 

“IQQ” cooperation between Pakistan and China Dr. Khurram said that sending any mission or satellite to the moon is a very expensive operation, and it will not be possible for Pakistan to bear the full cost of the whole mission on moon, even sending it to orbit the earth would require a lot of money. 

Pakistan on Moon

He said that China’s support for Pakistan’s “IQBQ” propaganda is important to Pakistan; otherwise, the missionary site would have to spend a lot of money to publish it. Pakistan cannot afford this. The cost of building the satellite was not disclosed.

This is the first time that the Pakistani nation is looking forward to reaching Pakistan on moon.

Dr. Khurram said it was difficult to estimate the total cost because it costs more to build satellites, and the cost is higher in Pakistan because of China and the dream of Pakistan on Moon. The process is free. 

He said that even sending satellites into Earth orbit is very expensive, and the cost of deep space missions is also very high. We just need to pay for the cost of building the satellites.
