How it works

Process of Replicating a Shooting Star

A natural shooting star occurs when a particle in space, with a size of a few millimeters, enters the atmosphere and burns brightly through a process called plasma emission. Our goal is to artificially recreate this process.

We will launch a satellite loaded with about five hundred to a thousand "source particles" that become ingredients for a shooting star. When the satellite stabilizes in orbit, we will discharge the particles using a specially designed device on board. The particles will travel about one-thirds of the way around the Earth and enter the atmosphere. It will then begin plasma emission and become a shooting star.

In the "Sky Canvas Project," numerous source particles can be continuously emitted, which allows us to create not only a single shooting star, but a real meteor shower.
