Pakistan has joined the league of lunar explorers with the launch of ICUBE-Q, its first lunar mission. Developed by the Institute of Space Technology (IST) in Islamabad, in collaboration with China’s Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Pakistan’s SUPARCO, this CubeSat was part of the payload on China’s Chang’e-6 mission, which launched from Hainan, China. This milestone is not just a demonstration of technological prowess but also a testament to the deepening space cooperation between Pakistan and China.
