Chengdu is a constantly growing and changing city. From panda habitats to artificial moons, a lot’s been happening recently. Here’s a quick rundown:

This will come from an ‘artificial moon’ satellite, which will intensify the illumination of the moon onto the city streets at night, providing additional lighting without the use of electricity. Details are sparse, but several key points have come to light regarding this strange new venture.
