Pakistan to launch its next satellite named MM1

This milestone follows the successful launch of Pakistan’s maiden lunar satellite, ICUBE Qamar, underscoring the nation’s commitment to advancing in space technology. MM1, equipped with a 7kg one-megapixel camera, will withstand extreme lunar conditions, transmitting images at a rate of 1-kbps for surface-level analysis.

The satellite’s mission extends beyond national boundaries, with MM1’s findings holding immense promise for global scientific research. From identifying crater locations to detecting water and traces of ice on the moon’s surface, MM1’s data will contribute significantly to humanity’s understanding of celestial bodies and pave the way for future space exploration endeavors. Pakistan’s strides in space technology exemplify its dedication to scientific progress and innovation on the global stage.
