Due to its position, both our planet and the far side of the moon will be in the “Quieqiao” visibility zone at the same time. The satellite will become a repeater for the descent vehicle of the Chang'e-4 mission. It is scheduled to launch at the end of this year. "Chang'e-4" should sit in the area of ​​the crater Karman. If successful, he will be the first in the history of the earth apparatus, made a soft landing on the far side of the moon.

Together with Queuxiao, two Longjiang microsatellites weighing 45 kg each were also launched to the Moon. They will go into an extended circumlunar orbit and will conduct astronomical measurements in the ultra-long wavelength range. As for Queqiao, in addition to transmitting signals from Chang'e-4, he will also be engaged in certain scientific research.On board the device is installed an instrument that will register low-frequency radio emission from the early Universe.
