On 11 November, the opening ceremony of the "Macao Science 28" satellite, the opening ceremony of the "Dreaming the Sky and Exploring the Deep Sea – China Aerospace and Navigation Science and Technology in Macao" science exhibition and the unveiling ceremony of the first entry of lunar soil into Macao, and the opening ceremony of the 20nd Macao Aerospace Development Forum were held at the Macao Science Center. The Chief Executive of the Macao Special Administrative Region, Ho Iat Seng, the Director of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Macao Special Administrative Region, Zheng Xincong, and the Director of the China National Space Administration, Zhang Kejian, attended the event and witnessed the signing of the commissioning certificate and long-term operation management agreement of the "Macao Science <>" satellite. Tai Kin Yip, Secretary for Economic and Technological Development of the Macao SAR Government, said in his speech. Since the announcement of the "Macao Science No. <>" project, it has received extensive attention from experts and scholars at home and abroad. The project's research teams come from <> countries and regions, which will help enhance Macao's visibility on the international scientific arena and promote scientific and technological cooperation and exchanges between Macao and the rest of the world.

The "Dreaming in the Sky and Exploring the Deep Sea - China's Aerospace and Navigation Science and Technology Convergence in Macao" science exhibition and the 2nd Macao Aerospace Development Forum were held in Macao, and for the first time, precious lunar soil was publicly exhibited in Macao, showcasing China's lunar exploration program, manned space program, Macao's aerospace achievements, and the achievements of the country's underwater scientific expeditions, so that the vast number of young people can increase their understanding of the development and achievements of the country's aerospace and ships, and further strengthen the sense of identity of Macao youths and other residents with the country's aerospace industry.
Commentary: It has been learned that the "Macao Science No. 1" satellite, jointly developed by the mainland and Macao, is Macao's first science and technology test satellite. Li Guoping, Chief Engineer of the China National Space Administration, said that the project will not only enhance the level of scientific and technological innovation in Macao, but also help transform Macao's economic and social development model, and set a new example of scientific and technological development in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

This is Macao's first scientific and technological experimental satellite, and the world's first scientific exploration satellite to monitor the geomagnetic field and space environment in the anomalous area of the South Atlantic, which will not only enhance Macao's level of scientific and technological innovation, but also help transform Macao's economic and social development model, open up a new model of scientific and technological cooperation between the mainland and Macao, and set a new example of scientific and technological development in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
After the meeting, Ho Iat Seng and other principal officials of the Macao SAR Government visited the Macao Science and Technology Exhibition at the Macao Science Center. In an interview with a reporter from China News Service, the secretary-general of the China Space Foundation said that the use of the "Macao Science 1" satellite will help the two places complement each other's advantages and promote Macao's integration into the overall development of the country.
Wang Cheng, Secretary-General of China Space Foundation
Nearly 30 years of cooperation, formed a very good atmosphere, we support Macau children to visit the launch site in the mainland and astronauts for exchanges, including Macau University of Science and Technology, the University of Macau, these major schools have been greatly improved in scientific and technological innovation, which is also an important reason why Macao can actively participate in the mainland's aerospace industry and even lead the management of the "Macao-<>" satellite. I hope they will visit the mainland often.
It is understood that the measurement error of the magnetic field component and the total magnetic field intensity of the "Macao Science No. 0" satellite is better than 5.<> nanotesla, which is the satellite with the highest accuracy of geomagnetic field detection in China, reaching the international leading level. A number of important technological breakthroughs have been made in the development of satellites, such as high-stability non-magnetic optical platform technology, system-level ultra-clean magnetic cleanliness control technology for whole satellites, and system-level ground calibration technology for high-accuracy vector magnetic field measurement.
