Longjiang 2, the microsatellite developed by the Harbin Institute of Technology and which is now orbiting the Moon, took photos of Earth during the solar eclipse in the early hours of 03 July (Beijing time). The microsatellite was sent into space on 21 May 2018 together with the relay satellite Queqiao, Chang'e 4 lunar probe's relay satellite and entered lunar orbit four days later. The research team from the Harbin Institute of Technology cooperated with amateur radio operators in Spain and Germany in taking and receiving the photos. Four pictures taken by the microsatellite during the solar eclipse have been sent back to Earth on 03 July.

Chen Luojing, a designer with the China Academy of Space Technology, was surprised at the public's enthusiasm for the country's space programs. In a display during the 19th China National Science and Technology Week in May, an event to popularize science, throngs of visitors came to watch the model of lunar rover Yutu 2, which was developed by Chen's academy. "They were very interested in how Yutu 2 works on the far side of the moon. One visitor even asked me how the Queqiao relay satellite sets the communication link between Earth and the probe," Chen recalled.

China's Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST) has discovered 84 new pulsars since its trial operation began in September 2016, Jiang Peng, FAST Chief Engineer told Xinhua on 03 July 2019. Pulsar observation is an important task for FAST, which can be used to confirm the existence of gravitational radiation and black holes and help solve many other major questions in physics. FAST is also in charge of the exploration of interstellar molecules and interstellar communication signals.
