The Chinese space program asked a group of scientists to study the feasibility of a manned radar station on the moon, a project whose feasibility and whose high cost has raised questions, according to the South China Morning Post.

The study was initiated this year with funding of 16 million yuan (2.11 million euros) and includes the possibility of installing a radar antenna of up to 50 meters can monitor much larger areas of land than that achieved by conventional satellites.

With a base of this type can be would get clearer images of the planet, which would allow a better study of the earth’s surface, the sea floor and to the basement.

The lunar radar for now only one project could have scientific uses (weather forecast or earthquakes, for example), but also military, according to the daily Hong Kong.
