The Chinese satellite Queqiao (with a Dutch antenna) is on its way to research the early stages of the universe.

Last night the Queqiao has been succesfully launched for its unique and historic mission. The antenna that will be stationed at the moon’s far side is a Dutch instrument manufactured by GTM. This CFRP antenna will span 5 meters in length when deployed.
