Beijing, China has launched a new spy satellite project

known as Guanlan, which can use laser beams to monitor submarines

at a depth of 500 meters below the ocean surface.

The “Guanlan” project, which means “big wave monitoring”, was

launched under the activity of China’s National Laboratory, according to

the South China Morning newspaper. Its components have been

developed by more than 20 universities from all over China.

The scientists involved in the project said the impact of artificial

lasers is very strong and makes the upper layer of the sea more

transparent and may be a billion times brighter than the sun. They

added that this type of deep sea observation is an impossible task

because the laser cannot penetrate that depth.
